ISLAMABAD (92 News) – Pakistan has decided to take the Occupied Kashmir issue to the International Court of Justice (ICJ), said Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi on Tuesday. In a message, he said that the issue of human rights violations will also be raised in the International Court of Justice. “Our stance is clear, valid and principled,” he said. He said that the decision had been taken keeping in view all legal and aspects. The minister said that the Law Ministry would soon provide all details. Earlier addressing a press conference after a meeting of the United Nations Security Council in Islamabad, he said that the United Nations has expressed its grave concern over the situation in Kashmir. “India tried its best to stop the UNSC meeting. The Kashmir issue has been discussed in the UNSC after five decades,” he said. The minister said that the Indian case was based on two points – it is its internal matter and there is no discuss it here. “The world accepted that it is not an internal matter of India. It is an international matter. The UNSC negated the Indian stance. The international community is carefully looking into the matter,” he declared. Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi said that he had called a meeting at 11 am on Saturday and different institutions will participate in the meeting. “We will deliberate on the matter keeping in view the history development achieved today,” he said. He was of the view that the common man is wise and understands Pakistanis passing through a difficult phase. “Diplomacy is not a power button which will yield the result in a minute,” he said. The minister termed the statement of the Indian defence minister a folly. “We will continue to support the Kashmiris till achievement of their right,” he said. He said that the prime minister had contacted heads of different states. “Today the PM made a telephonic contact with US President Donald Trump and exchanged views about the Afghan peace process,” he added.
