Responding to media queries, the Spokesperson said that Pakistan rejects baseless assertions made by the Indian Minister of State for External Affairs, V. Muraleedharan, in Rajya Sabha.
With its gross and systematic human rights violations and state-terrorism in Indian Illegally Occupied Jammu and Kashmir (IIOJK), India cannot mislead the world community by levelling unfounded allegations against others. It is India that has vitiated the atmosphere with its illegal and unilateral measures of 5 August 2019 in IIOJK and with continuous belligerent rhetoric and aggressive actions.
The onus is on India to create an enabling environment by rescinding its illegal and unilateral actions, ending its state-terrorism against the Kashmiri people, and agreeing to resolve the Jammu & Kashmir dispute in accordance with international legitimacy.
The Government of Pakistan calls upon the Indian Government to end its illegal and forcible occupation of parts of Jammu & Kashmir and comply with its international obligations by giving Kashmiris their inalienable right to self-determination through a free and impartial plebiscite under the auspices of the United Nations as enshrined in the relevant UNSecurity Council Resolutions.
