Islamabad (Agencies): Pakistan has rejected New Delhi’s move to show parts of Azad Kashmir, and Gilgit Baltistan as Indian territory.
According to a Foreign Office statement, the maps issued by Indian home ministry on Saturday(Nov 2, 2019) were incorrect, legally untenable, void and in complete violation of the relevant United Nations Security Council Resolutions (UNSCR).
“Pakistan rejects these political maps, which are incompatible with the United Nations’ maps,” the statement read.
The FO reiterated that no step by India could change the “disputed” status of Jammu and Kashmir recognized by the United Nations.
“Pakistan would continue supporting the legitimate struggle of the people of Indian occupied Jammu and Kashmir for exercising their right to self-determination in accordance with the relevant UN Security Council Resolutions,” the statement added.
The Indian home ministry had issued a notification detailing the boundaries of the "Union Territories of Jammu and Kashmir and Ladakh, and also issued a new political map of India," reported the Indian publication Scroll.in.
