Pakistan has reaffirmed its unflinching support and solidarity with the Kashmiri people as the inhuman lock-down in Indian Occupied Jammu & Kashmir (IOJ&K) reaches 150 days.
Spokesperson of Pakistan Foreign Office Aisha Farooqui shared a press release, in which Pakistan vowed to raise the plight of over 8 million innocent Kashmiris under the brutal occupation of 900,000 Indian security personnel, persecuting them day and night with impunity at all international forums.

The Press Release further stated that India’s farcical claims of “normalcy” returning to the situation in IOJ&K carry no credibility whatsoever. We will continue to stress the importance of urgent and effective steps by the world community to address India’s state-terrorism against the Kashmiri people, who are demanding their legitimate right of self-determination as enshrined in the United National Security Council Resolutions.
The Foreign office said in the context of situation in IOJ&K, we reject the new Indian Army Chief’s irresponsible statement regarding “pre-emptive strikes” across the LoC inside Azad Jammu & Kashmir (AJ&K).
There should be no doubt about Pakistan’s resolve and readiness to thwart any aggressive Indian move, inside its territory or AJ&K. No one should forget Pakistan’s befitting response to India’s Balakot misadventure, the press release stated.
Pakistan further said that despite India’s provocations, Pakistan will continue contributing to all efforts of promoting peace, security and stability in the region and beyond.
