Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan on Saturday held a high-level meeting chaired by Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi to discuss the situation in Kashmir and to devise a future plan of action following the UN Security Council meeting where it failed to censure India over its revocation of special status to Jammu and Kashmir.
Various Pakistani institutions were part of the meeting, which is expected to have lais out a future course of action over the Kashmir dispute, Geo News reported.
Pakistan-occupied Kashmir president Sardar Masood Khan, along with various other federal Ministers and special advisers to the Prime Minister, attended the meeting.
In a huge diplomatic win for India, the UNSC had on Friday acknowledged India’s measures to bring normalcy and development to Kashmir.
Barring China, the world has accepted India’s position including the Arab world, formerly sponsors and supporters of Pakistan.
Reacting to the victory, India’s Ambassador and Permanent Representative to the UN, Syed Akbaruddin said the issue is “entirely is an internal matter”.
“We are gratified that the UNSC in its closed consultations appreciated these efforts, acknowledged them, and indicated that this is the direction that it would like the international community to move. We are committed to gradually removing all the restrictions,” he said.
Slamming Pakistan, which has been trying to whip up passions over Kashmir, he said, “Of particular concern is that one state is using the terminology of jihad against and promoting violence in India, including by their leaders. Violence is no solution to the problems that all of us face. We are committed to and consistent in our previous position that all issues between India and Pakistan as well as India and any other country will be resolved bilaterally, peacefully and in a manner that behoves normal inter-state relations between countries”.
