BAKU, Azerbaijan: Pakistan’s Ambassador to Azerbaijan Dr Saeed Khan Mohmand has said that Pakistan and Azerbaijan have long been suffering from foreign aggression of similar nature especially from their respective neighborhood, reports Azerbaijan’s Report News Agency from Baku.
In his address at an event dedicated to the Day of Solidarity with Kashmir in Baku, the ambassador said that India is trying to influence the demographic background of Jammu and Kashmir, in the same way as Armenia is trying to falsify history in the occupied lands of Azerbaijan.
“I am sure that the people of Azerbaijan are in solidarity with the people of Pakistan in the issue of Jammu and Kashmir as well as Pakistan sympathizes with and supports Azerbaijan in the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict. Because we experienced a similar tragedy, when some forces try to seize, appropriate our primordial lands”, he was quoted as saying by Report News Agency.
Dr Saeed Khan said that Jammu and Kashmir, which are occupied by India, are the original Pakistani lands.
“Pakistan is calling for an end to the violence and violation of the rights of Pakistanis in Jammu and Kashmir,” the envoy said.
The ambassador stressed that as a result of the conflict with India, tens of thousands of Pakistanis were killed or severely discriminated when they could not freely practice their religious national rites and customs.
The ambassador noted that in this context, the fate of the peoples of Azerbaijan and Pakistan are similar.
