*Prime Minister Chairs High-level meeting on Kashmir*

 

Prime Minister Imran Khan chaired a high-level meeting today, that reviewed all aspects of the situation in Indian Occupied Jammu & Kashmir (IOJ&K).

 

The meeting was attended by Chief of Army Staff General Qamar Javed Bajwa, SAPM Dr. Moeed Yousaf, DG ISI Lt. Gen. Faiz Hamid, Foreign Secretary Sohail Mehmood and other senior military and civilian officials.

 

The participants condemned India’s inhuman lockdown of 8 million Kashmiris for over 165 days, the egregious human rights violations of Kashmiris by over 900,000 Indian occupation forces, and the threat posed to peace and security by the BJP government’s belligerent rhetoric and aggressive actions on the ground. 

 

It was underlined that the RSS-inspired BJP government’s ‘Hindutva’ mindset, with its anti-Muslim and anti-Kashmiri obsession, was responsible for creating a perilous situation for regional peace and stability.

 

The participants welcomed the consideration of Jammu & Kashmir in the Security Council on 15 January 2020 and noted that it reflected the international community’s recognition of the seriousness of the situation.

 

It was also decided to observe the Kashmir Solidarity Day on 5 February 2020 in a befitting manner.

 

The Prime Minister reaffirmed Pakistan’s unshakable political, diplomatic and moral support and solidarity with the Kashmiri people until the realization of their inalienable right to self-determination.
