The Foreign Minister strongly condemns the horrific killing of more than ten innocent Kashmiris at the hands of Indian occupation forces in its continued acts of state terrorism in Indian occupied Jammu and Kashmir (IoK). The people of IoK are being victimized to quell their struggle for the realization of their legitimate right to self-determination. Pakistan mourns, with its brothers and sisters in IoK, on this unabated killing spree and salutes the courage and commitment of the people of Indian occupied Jammu and Kashmir.
The international community needs to take swift action against human rights violations in IoK by the Indian occupation forces. Pakistan calls upon the international community to take cognizance of human rights violations in IoK as well as the OHCHR Report on Jammu and Kashmir, immediately urge India to stop the bloodshed in IoK and allow the OHCHR’s Commission of Inquiry to visit IoK and investigate.
