ISLAMABAD (92 News) – The Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) on Saturday reaffirmed the United Nations Security Council Resolutions on the internationally recognized status of Indian Occupied Jammu and Kashmir (IOJ&K) dispute and its final resolution through a UN supervised plebiscite.
In a declaration, the OIC General Secretariat said that it was following with concern developments in Occupied Jammu and Kashmir as a result of the unilateral decision taken by India on August 5, revoking Constitutional Article 370, thereby removing its special status.
