Islamabad—A three day ambassadors’ conference begins in the capital from August 01 to discuss some of the hot issues facing the country on the external front.
According to sources, the country’s envoys to India, Afghanistan, China, the United States and other important capitals are likely to attend the moot. The sources said that such conferences are summoned on important issues in which the ambassadors are called in to give their assessment of the situation and give the way forward.
The conference is being held in the wake of breakout of violence triggered by the martyrdom of Burhan Wani at the hands of Indian troops in occupied Kashmir. In their continued acts of brutalities, the Indian troops have martyred several innocent Kashmiri civilians while leaving hundreds of others injured.
Pakistan has voiced serious concerns over the ‘brutal killings of civilians’ and violation of their other fundamental rights by India’s security forces and has decided to approach the UN Human Rights Council to investigate human rights violations and the recent wave of violence against civilians in India-held Kashmir.
The unrest in Kashmir has also sparked diplomatic spat between Pakistan and India. Therefore, the sources, said the holding of conference of ambassadors at this important time carries special significance. They said Pakistan has already briefing ambassadors of different important capitals in Islamabad about the latest situation in Occupied Kashmir and impressed upon them to take notice of the deteriorating situation in the violence wrecked valley. The sources said that the ambassadors will give their viewpoint as to how the matter of human rights violations in occupied Kashmir is taken up effectively at different international fora. The strategy will be firmed up on the basis of the envoys suggestions in order to expose the Indian atrocities at world level.
The growing Indian interference in Pakistan as well as the arrest of RAW’s agents in Pakistan will also come up for discussion in the moot.
