Pakistan always ready for talks with India, Qureshi tells Denmark’s FM

ISLAMABAD, Pakistan: Pakistan has always expressed readiness and are ready for talks with India, the Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi told his Danish Counterpart Jeppe Kofod whom he telephoned on Wednesday and apprised him of the prevailing situation in the Indian Occupied Kashmir. 

Qureshi informed Denmark’s foreign minister about the Indian unilateral step of abrogating the special status of occupied Jammu and Kashmir to change the demographic composition of the territory. He said that the unilateral actions by India are in total contravention of international laws and UN Security Council resolutions.

Shah Mahmood Qureshi said that India has put in place a complete curfew in the occupied territory since August 5 and committing relentless human rights violations there.

The foreign minister said the UN Secretary General Antonio Guterre has also taken notice of the situation. He said that the Kashmiri people have no access to food and medicines due to complete clampdown.

Shah Mahmood Qureshi asked his Danish Counterpart to play his role to get the curfew lifted in the Indian Occupied Kashmir and bring an end to the difficulties faced by Kashmiri people.

The Danish foreign minister said that Denmark has concerns on the current situation. He said that we will ask both the sides to pursue the course of dialogue to save the region from any conflict.
