PM Imran chairs high-level meeting to discuss IOK situation

Islamabad (Web Desk): Prime Minister Imran Khan on Thursday chaired a high-level meeting to review the situation in India-occupied Kashmir (IOK).

According to details, a press release issued by the Prime Minister Imran Khan reaffirmed Pakistan's unshakable political, diplomatic and moral support and solidarity with Kashmiri people until realization of their inalienable right to self-determination, the Radio Pakistan reported.

The participants of the meeting condemned India’s lock-down in Kashmir for over 165 days.

During the meeting, it was decided that Kashmir Solidarity Day will be observed on February 5 in a befitting manner.

The meeting welcomed the consideration of Jammu and Kashmir in the United Nations (UN) Security Council today and noted that it reflects the international community's recognition of the seriousness of the situation.

The participants condemned India's inhuman lockdown of eight million Kashmiris for over 165 days, the egregious human rights violations of Kashmiris by over 900,000 Indian occupation forces.

The meeting also discussed the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) government’s ‘Hindutva’ mindset, with its anti-Muslim and anti-Kashmiri obsession, which it said was responsible for creating a perilous situation for regional peace and stability.

The meeting was attended by Chief of Army Staff (COAS) General Qamar Javed Bajwa, Special Assistant to the Prime Minister Dr Moeed Yousaf, Director General Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) Lieutenant General Faiz Hamid, Foreign Secretary Sohail Mehmood and other senior military and civilian officials.
