Pakistan today briefed ambassadors of Organisation of Islamic Conference (OIC) countries about the situation in Kashmir, appealing them to condemn alleged human rights violations in the Valley and play an effective role to resolve the issue. Special Assistant to the Prime Minister (SAPM), Syed Tariq Fatemi, briefed OIC Ambassadors about the latest situation in Kashmir. The Foreign Office, in a statement, said that Fatemi briefed them about the alleged human rights violations being committed by the Indian forces in the Valley.
He urged the OIC countries to condemn the “brutalities” in Kashmir and play an effective role to resolve the issue. He referred to Palestine and Jammu and Kashmir as the “oldest unresolved disputes” on the agenda of the UN Security Council. He called for vigorous efforts for the resolution of both these disputes, in accordance with the UN Security Council resolutions. The SAPM alleged that India has “deliberately escalated tension” on the border to divert international attention away from “human rights violations” in Kashmir.
