Shah Mehmood's press briefing in Islamabad

Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi says the UNSC meeting on Kashmir has negated and exposed Indian tactics to put the Kashmir issue under carpet.

Briefing newsmen in Islamabad after the UNSC meeting on Kashmir, he said it is a historic moment that the world’s highest forum has specifically discussed the Kashmir issue and the prevailing grim human rights situation in occupied Kashmir.

He said that this UNSC session is testimony to the fact that the international community is fully vigilant over the human rights violations in Occupied Kashmir.

Foreign Minister said a consultative meeting has been convened at Foreign Office in Islamabad tomorrow to discuss further building blocks after this session.

He said representatives of different national institutions will participate in the meeting.

Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi has made a telephonic contact with his South African counterpart Naledi Pandor and apprised her of the prevailing situation in Occupied Kashmir.

Shah Mahmood Qureshi said India is committing worst form of human rights violations in Occupied Kashmir.

He said the people of the occupied territory are facing great difficulties due the curfew imposed by India there over the last twelve days.

He said the people have no access to medicines and food while all sources of communications including mobile and internet have been blocked there.

The Foreign Minister said India wants to destroy regional peace by resorting to unconstitutional steps in the occupied valley.

Shah Mahmood Qureshi also briefed the South African foreign minister about the contours of the letter he wrote to the UN Security Council.
