He highlighted that India had deployed 180,000 additional troops in occupied kashmir. It also suspended mobile and internet services and imposed curfew, locking down the entire population of IOK.
Foreign Minister Qureshi conveyed that steps taken by India had the real potential to further deteriorate human rights situation in IOK as well as seriously impact peace and security in South Asia.
Qureshi pushed for the diplomats to effort to stop India from committing blatant violations of human rights in Kashmir.
The FM urged them to stop India from committing blatant violations of human rights of Kashmiri people. India has turned IOK into the largest prison in the world. It has deployed over 900,000 troops to subjugate 14 million Kashmiris.
Earlier in the day, the foreign minister while addressing a news conference announced that Pakistan would approach the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) over India’s move to revoke Article 370. He said he had told his Indian counterpart S Jaishankar that Islamabad dismissed New Delhi’s decision to term revoking Article 370 an internal matter.
Qureshi also made it clear to India this was not right and Pakistan dismisses this stance. Occupied Kashmir is an internationally recognized dispute, he further said.
