ISLAMABAD, Pakistan: The Foreign Minister Khawaja Muhammad Asif will lead the Pakistani delegation in the 7th Ministerial Conference of Heart of Asia –Istanbul Process being held from November 30 to December 01 in Baku, the Capital of Azerbaijan.

“Pakistan is an active member of the Heart of Asia –Istanbul Process. We have constructively participated in all seven Ministerial Conferences of Heart of Asia –Istanbul Process, and hosted fifth Ministerial Conference in Islamabad in December 2015,” the Foreign Office Spokesman Dr Muhammad Faisal said in his weekly press briefing in Islamabad on Thursday.

The spokesman said that the foreign minister will make a statement on behalf of Pakistan in the Ministerial segment of the conference on December 01.

Dr Faisal further said in his opening remarks that the foreign minister has expressed deep anguish at the gross violations of human rights in Indian occupied Jammu & Kashmir, which continue unabated. India continues with its malicious attempts to mislead the global community by seeking to portray the legitimate and indigenous struggle of the Kashmiri people as “terrorism.”
