European Parliament’s Committee on Foreign Affairs will take up the issue of escalating unrest in occupied Kashmir during its meeting here on Monday.
According to the details, Azad Jammu and Kashmir Prime Minister Raja Farooq Haider Khan will attend the meeting to properly appraise the parliament on the Kashmir situation and ongoing Indian atrocities for resolution.
AJK government has released a press release as per which, it is for the first time that the Kashmir conflict will be discussed in the EU Parliament.
AJK PM Raja Farooq Haider Khan will also meet the British parliamentarians in London.
Both committees will discuss the four-week curfew in Indian-held Kashmir and situation in the valley.
Reports coming out of the valley accuse the Indian government of mass imprisonments and human rights violations.
India, however, claims everything is returning to normal.
This situation developed after India repealed on August 5 Article 370 of its constitution, therefore revoking the special status granted to Kashmir.
Pakistan has been raising the issue on several international platforms, including approaching the UN and OIC.
Prime Minister Imran Khan has also spoken to multiple world leaders and briefed them on the situation in Kashmir.
Earlier, talking to the media, Raja Farooq hailed the US House Committee on Foreign Affairs’ decision to discuss the prevailing situation in the Indian Occupied Kashmir.
He said Kashmir is outstanding issue on the United Nations Security Council agenda, which would have to be settled in accordance with its resolutions and aspirations of the Kashmiri people.
