August 24, 2019

Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi has said that international community must take immediate steps to save human lives in Occupied Jammu and Kashmir as the Genocide Watch has also issued a detailed alert in this regard.

Addressing the Diplomatic Corps at Foreign Office, he said Indian illegal and unilateral actions to change demography of Occupied Kashmir are clear violations of the Geneva Convention.

The Foreign Minister said tensions between Pakistan and India over Kashmir issue are threat to regional peace. He said war between the two atomic powers is equivalent to mutual suicide.

Shah Mahmood Qureshi said he has talked to his counterparts of many countries and all have stressed the need to address the issue peacefully.

He said the recent session of Security Council is the acknowledgement of severity of the issue.

The Foreign Minister said Indian media is propagating the false news of an alleged terrorist attack from Pakistan to divert the attention of world community from the core issue of Kashmir.

He said we had already conveyed the danger of this propaganda in our letter written to the President of the Security Council.
