Pakistan rejects Indian govt announcement regarding Occupied Kashmir
Meanwhile, Pakistan has strongly condemned and rejected the announcements made today by the Indian government regarding the Indian Occupied Jammu and Kashmir.
In a statement issued on Monday, Foreign Office Spokesperson Dr. Muhammad Faisal said the Indian Occupied Jammu and Kashmir is an internationally recognized disputed territory.
He said no unilateral step by the Indian government can change this disputed status, as enshrined in the United Nations Security Council resolutions. Nor will this ever be acceptable to the people of Jammu and Kashmir and Pakistan.

He said Pakistan reaffirms its abiding commitment to the Kashmir cause and its political, diplomatic and moral support to the people of Occupied Jammu and Kashmir for realization of their inalienable right to self-determination.
