Pakistan has raised a strong objection to Foreign Minister S Jaishankar’s statement that Pakistan-occupied Kashmir (PoK) is part of India. Pakistan Foreign Ministry said that this statement of the Indian Foreign Minister is poisoning bilateral relations. Such statements of Indian leaders can disturb the peace of South Asia. Foreign Minister S Jaishankar had said in his statement two days ago that one day PoK will also finally be found in India. Expressing serious objection to this statement of S. Jaishankar, Pakistan called upon the international community to take cognizance of the statement of the Indian Foreign Minister.
Foreign Minister S Jaishankar had said in his statement two days ago that one day PoK will also finally be found in India.
Pakistan told the international community that such ‘irresponsible and insulting’ statements by Indian leaders would further increase tension in the region. He warned that such statements could threaten peace and security in the region. External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar said while talking on Pakistan and PoK that Pakistan cannot be spoken without stopping terrorism. Describing the removal of Artkil-370 from Jammu and Kashmir as an internal issue, Jaishankar said that Pakistan Occupied Kashmir (PoK) is ours and we hope that one day it will be a part of India.
Reacting to Jaishankar’s statement, Pakistan’s Foreign Office said, “We strongly condemn the inflammatory and irresponsible statements made by the Indian Foreign Minister about Pakistan and PoK.” The statement said that Pakistan stands for peace, but will be ready to give a strong response to any aggression.
