“We have lost more than 70,000 lives and suffered an economic loss of over $120 Billion.”

“Thousands of valiant soldiers and law enforcement officials have laid down their lives in defending the motherland.”

“I would like to thank and honor Pakistani citizens and families of martyrs of our law enforcement agencies and armed forces who have rendered immense sacrifices for the freedom, safety, and security of Pakistan and its people,”

“In the face of every tragedy, the resilient Pakistani nation has shown that the values of enlightenment, compassion, and empathy that bind us together are much stronger than the forces of intolerance, hatred, and violence that aim to divide.”

“As we commemorate this day, we must also remember and venerate the victims of the worst form of state terrorism perpetrated by India against innocent people of Indian Illegally Occupied Jammu and Kashmir (IIOJK),”

Pakistan Foreign Minister called for the international community to prosecute Indian civil and military personnel involved in state terrorism and serious crimes against humanity.
