PM lauds OIC for extending unwavering support to Kashmiri people
ISLAMABAD (92 News) – Prime Minister (PM) Imran Khan has lauded Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) for extending unwavering support to the people of Indian Occupied Kashmir (IOK). The prime minister expressed these views while talking to OIC Secretary General’s Special Envoy on Jammu and Kashmir Yousef M Al Dobeay who along with a high-level delegation met him in Islamabad. PM Khan lauded the role of OIC particularly in the aftermath of India’s unilateral and illegal actions of 5th of August last year. During the meeting, the premier said that the world community should take notice of the Indian barbarism on Muslims. He informed the OIC secretary general that the people of Pakistan as well as Kashmiris look towards the OIC and Muslim Ummah for their active support in the resolution of Jammu and Kashmir dispute in accordance with the relevant UNSC resolutions. On the occasion, Al Dobeay thanked PM Imran Khan for his participation in the Makkah Summit last year. He reiterated OIC’s principled position on the internationally recognized Jammu and Kashmir dispute, which called for its peaceful settlement in accordance with the relevant UNSC resolutions and the wishes of the Kashmiri people. Yousef M Al Dobeay is paying five-day visit to Pakistan from March 2 to 6 from Monday. He is leading a six-member delegation. During the visit, the delegation will be briefed on the deteriorating human rights situation in the Indian Occupied Jammu and Kashmir (IOJ&K). The special envoy and his accompanying delegation members will visit the Line of Control to get first-hand knowledge about the loss of lives and property caused by indiscriminate firing of the Indian forces. The special envoy’s visit is of particular significance in the backdrop of India’s unilateral and illegal actions of August 5 and the strong message on the Jammu and Kashmir dispute contained in the Resolutions and Communiqués of the OIC Council of Foreign Ministers (CFM) and Summit meetings. The OIC has extended its steadfast support to the Kashmiri people in their just struggle for the inalienable right to self-determination. The Organization has a dedicated Contact Group on Jammu and Kashmir since 1994.
