In a statement issued by the Inter-Services Public Relations, the army chief expressed solidarity with the people of Kashmir.

“Repression of Indian occupying forces can never suppress valiant spirit of Kashmiris who rightfully await awakening of international community for plebiscite under UN resolution,” he said. “Regardless of the ordeal, their struggle is destined to succeed Insha Allah.”

Resolving Kashmir dispute vital to regional trade

Separetly, Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi has said the people and government of Pakistan reaffirm their continued unflinching moral, diplomatic and political support to the oppressed people of Indian occupied Jammu and Kashmir in their legitimate struggle in the face of increasing Indian brutalities and gross human rights violations.

“Pakistan calls upon the international community to urge India to respect the Human Rights Charter; put an immediate end to the gross human rights violations of innocent Kashmiris in IoK and ensure expedited resolution of the Jammu and Kashmir dispute in line with the UNSC Resolutions and the aspirations of the Kashmiri people. This is essential for regional peace and development,” he said in a message on Kashmir Solidarity Day being observed on February 5.
