Pakistan rejects India’s statement terming crisis in Iok an internal affair
ISLAMABAD: Pakistan rejected India’s statement terming the deteriorating situation in occupied Kashmir its “internal affair”.
Addressing weekly news briefing in Islamabad, Pakistan Foreign Office spokesperson Dr Mohammad Faisal responded to the Indian Ministry of External Affairs’ statement that “the recent developments pertaining to Article 370 are entirely the internal affair of India.”
“Pakistan categorically rejects India’s [statement] that Kashmir is an internal matter,” Dr Faisal said, as he reaffirmed that Pakistan will continue its political, diplomatic and moral support to Kashmiris in achieving their right to self-determination.
India earlier today hit back at Pakistan´s downgrading of diplomatic ties over its actions on occupied Kashmir, saying its decision to strip the region of its autonomy was an “internal affair”.
