Pak rejects India�s move on Article 370

By The Assam Tribune

ISLAMABAD, Aug 5 - Pakistan on Monday condemned and rejected the Indian government revoking Article 370 of the Constitution which gave special status to Jammu and Kashmir and vowed to exercise �all possible options� to counter India�s �illegal� and �unilateral� step.

Reacting sharply to the Indian government�s announcement, Pakistan Foreign Office in a statement said, �Jammu and Kashmir is an internationally recognised disputed territory�.

�No unilateral step by the Government of India can change this disputed status, as enshrined in the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) resolutions. Nor will this ever be acceptable to the people of Jammu and Kashmir and Pakistan,� it said.

Pakistan strongly condemns and rejects the announcements made by the Indian Government regarding Jammu and Kashmir, the statement said.

�As the party to this international dispute, Pakistan will exercise all possible options to counter the illegal steps,� it said.

Pakistan reaffirms its abiding commitment to the Kashmir cause and its political, diplomatic and moral support to the people of Jammu and Kashmir for realisation of their inalienable right to self-determination, the statement said.

Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi said Pakistan would request and appeal to the United Nations, Organisation of Islamic Cooperation, friendly countries and human rights organisations not to remain silent on this issue.

�We intend to firmly highlight our stance in our meetings with the US delegation visiting Pakistan and with the International Community at large,� Qureshi said in a tweet.

The situation in Kashmir was more serious than before, he said, adding that Pakistan will consult legal experts.

Qureshi said that India by changing status of Kashmir violated its commitment made in the United Nations on the Kashmir issue.

Talking to a private news channel, he claimed that the �Indian move to revoke Article 370 has no legal or constitutional justification.�

�India cannot change the public opinion through this move, and it has rather internationalised the Kashmir issue,� he said. � PTI
