Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi has said that open support of 58 world countries on Kashmir dispute through a joint statement in Geneva is of great significance for Pakistan and especially for the Kashmiris.

He was presiding over the 9th meeting of Advisory Council for Foreign Affairs in Islamabad today.

Shah Mahmood Qureshi welcomed the decision of Indian Supreme Court regarding the permission to opposition leader Ghulam Nabi Azad's visit to curfew hit areas of Jammu and Kashmir.

He said the Indian Supreme Court verdict validates Pakistan's position.

The Foreign Minister said millions of innocent Kashmiris have been facing the worst curfew for the past forty-three days.

During the meeting, special consultation was also held to highlight the Kashmir situation globally through UN General Assembly session being held later this month.

The meeting also agreed to further enhance diplomatic relations with the international community to save Kashmiris from Indian aggression.
