Pakistan rejects Indian intention of scrapping Article 370

To a question, Dr Mohammad Faisal said Pakistan has completely rejected the Indian intention of scrapping Article 370 of its constitution that guarantees autonomous status to the state of Jammu and Kashmir.

He said the issue of Kashmir could be resolved only according to UN Security Council resolutions and aspirations of the Kashmiris.

The FO spokesperson said Pakistan has been consistently raising the issue of human rights violations in Occupied Kashmir at the United Nations.

“If India takes any step towards the scrapping of Article 370, Pakistan will not only raise this issue at the world body level but also with India,” he clarified.

He said Indian repression of Kashmiris cannot break their demand of self-determination.
