Pakistan President Mamnoon Hussain today asked the newly elected president of PoK to “highlight the Kashmir issue at every international fora”. Felicitating President of Pakistan-occupied Kashmir (PoK) Masood Khan here, Hussain said Pakistan will “continue its moral, political and diplomatic” support to Kashmiris for their right to self-determination.
He expressed hope Khan will “utilise his experiences and abilities to highlight the Kashmir issue at every international fora”. The development comes two days after Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif appointed 22 lawmakers as envoys, who would visit key world capitals to highlight alleged Indian atrocities in Kashmir.
He added that Pakistan strongly condemns the “brutal violence” of Indian security forces in Kashmir, Radio Pakistan reported.
Khan thanked Hussain for his keen interest in the PoK affairs during the meeting that also discussed the overall situation of the region.
