ISLAMABAD: Azad Jammu and Kashmir Prime Minister Raja Farooq Haider has called upon Arab states to support the diplomatic efforts that Pakistan has been making to resolve the Kashmir dispute.

At UN, Pakistan slams Indian rights violations in Kashmir

“The issues of Kashmir and Palestine remain on the UN agenda for a long time and both Kashmiris and Palestinians have been denied their right to self-determination,” the AJK PM said in a statement issued on Sunday.

Haider said Israel and India have been committing grave human rights violations and added this showed that the two countries were hand in glove when it comes to occupation territories.

AJK mentioned as ‘Pakistan Occupied Kashmir’ in 5th graders’ textbook

“India never supported the Palestinian cause by heart. It continues to receive weapons of mass destruction from Israel to use them in Occupied Kashmir.”

He said Israel was the third biggest weapon supplier country to India. “This is time and opportunity for Arab countries to support Pakistan in its just stance on Kashmir and they should not welcome the Indian prime minister on their soil,” Haider said.

PrakashG | 6 years ago | Reply If you want to play 'human rights violation' card against India, forget any support from anywhere. Remember East Pakistan? Or the large number of disappeared people from Baluchistan?
