Saying that it will oppose any move by India to divide or change the demography of Kashmir, Pakistan has issued a warning for India on Saturday ahead of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s high stakes meeting with political leaders of Jammu and Kashmir on 24th June. Shah Mahmood Qureshi, the Foreign minister of Pakistan has mentioned that India must refrain from taking any “further illegal steps” in Kashmir after its actions of August 05, 2019, in an official statement issued by Pakistan’s foreign office.
Expected to set the roadmap for holding assembly elections in the Union territory, 14 political leaders from Jammu and Kashmir are called by Prime Minister Narendra Modi for a high-level meeting in New Delhi next Thursday. The statement from Pakistan came on the same day on which the invitations were given to the political leaders for the meeting.
Pakistan strongly opposes India’s actions of 5th August 2019 and for the same, they had spoken at several international conventions including the United Nation’s Security Council (UNSC) as said by Pakistan’s Foreign Minister, Qureshi. By the relevant UNSC resolutions and the wishes of the Kashmiri people true peace in South Asia can only be peacefully achieved when the Kashmir issue is resolved concerning that, he added.
It is to be noted that the relations between India and Pakistan have deteriorated ever since the special status of Jammu and Kashmir was ended by the government led by Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi abolished section 370 of the Constitution.
