Pak Says Will Move UN Security Council On Kashmir With China's Support
Aug 11 2019
Tensions have soared between India and Pakistan after New Delhi earlier this week revoked Article 370 which gave special status to Jammu and Kashmir and moved a separate bill to split the state into two union territories of Jammu and Kashmir, which would get its own legislature, and Ladakh, which would not.
Pakistan says that with the support of China, it will take up India's unilateral actions in the disputed region of Kashmir with the U.N. Security Council and may approach the U.N. Human Rights Commission over what it says is the "genocide" of the Kashmiri people. The Kashmir issue is a dispute left from the colonial history.
Mr Qureshi expressed the hope that China would stand up for justice on Kashmir issue.
The Jamaat-i-Islami (JI) chief, Gilgit-Baltistan governor, and Azad Jammu and Kashmir (AJK) president would be added to Prime Minister Imran Khan's seven-member committee to recommend responses to developments in occupied Kashmir, a notification from the PM Office said.
"China and Pakistan are all-weather strategic partners and have always understood and supported each other on issues concerning core interests, which is also a good tradition that both countries should cherish", Wang stressed.
Wang made the remarks when holding talks with Pakistani Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi, who is in China on a special and emergency visit.
Speaking to media before leaving Islamabad, the foreign minister said India is intent on disrupting the regional peace with its unconstitutional measures and that China is not only a friend to Pakistan but also an important country of the region. "India did not accept the offer for us I think the United States continued engagement has an important role to play in not just adding - trying to help two countries have a dialogue to resolve the issue but also to urge India to undo things they have done over the last week in unleashing pressure, arresting people across the board, in turning the valley into a huge prison".
