Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi said that the Kashmir issue has become not only a nuclear flashpoint but also an issue of survival of humanity in Kashmir.
Addressing a function on the occasion of ‘Black Kashmir Day’ in Islamabad, he said that the issue of Kashmir has become not a political or land dispute between Pakistan and India but a matter of survival of humanity.
He said that on August 5, 2019, India ended the special status of Occupied Kashmir which is against international law.
The Foreign Minister said that Indian initiatives were leading to a change in geographical position.
Shah Mehmood Qureshi said that on this very day the invading Indian forces had occupied Jammu and Kashmir and since then humanity in the valley has been dying every day.
He further said that Kashmiri youth are not alone in their struggle for independence but Pakistani youth are also by their side and we will be their voice in their struggle.
Shah Mehmood Qureshi reiterated to be the voice of occupied Kashmir at the international level.
He said that India has banned all means of communication in Occupied Kashmir and the voice of Occupied Kashmir is being suppressed but we should make it clear that Pakistan has become the voice of these Kashmiri brothers and is facing global oppression in the Valley.
The Foreign Minister lamented the role of the international community in silencing India’s inhumane treatment of the Kashmiri people.
Shah Mehmood Qureshi said that Prime Minister Imran Khan had successfully raised the issue of Kashmir in every forum at the international level which proved that he was the real ambassador of Kashmir.
He assured the Kashmiri people that they would continue to support Kashmir morally, politically and diplomatically until they got their right to self-determination.
He also hinted at imposing sanctions on the gradual increase in coronavirus cases in the country.
He said the tightening of sanctions was becoming inevitable due to the Coronavirus pandemic.
Shah Mehmood Qureshi said that the rate of positive cases of Corona in the country has reached 2.5 to 3.5 per cent due to which the possibility of lockdown is increasing.
