stance on Kashmir: Firdous
Sialkot
Special Assistant to the Prime Minister on Information and Broadcasting Dr Firdous Ashiq Awan Saturday said the international community was supporting Pakistan’s stance on the Kashmir issue.
Prime Minister Imran Khan’s approach of promoting peace in the region was fully backed by the world, she said while talking to media persons here.
She said China proved that it had always stood with the truth and uprightness by again supporting Pakistan’s stance on the Kashmir issue.
After long time, the Kashmir issue had been internationalized due President Donald Trump offer of mediation during Prime Imran Khan’s visit to the United States, she added.
Dr Firdous said by playing the most condemned role in the region, Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi proved himself as the cruellest person of the history. However, the entire Pakistani nation stood united with their Kashmiri brethren to counter the extremist mindset of Modi, she added.
She said the oppressed people of Indian occupied Jammu and Kashmir were not alone in the time of trial and their sacrifices would bear fruit as the hearts of Pakistani people beat with them. To a question, the special assistant said,”We do not war, we want durable peace and good relations with our neighbours.”
However, Pakistan was ready to defend its every inch, she added.
She said the international community was expressing complete solidarity with Pakistan and the oppressed Kashmiri people, besides strongly condemning the Indian state terrorism in the occupied valley.
She said the Pakistani nation would observe its independence day on August 14 as Kashmir solidarity day and August 15 as a black day against the Indian state terrorism in the held valley. Black flags would be hoisted across Pakistan on August 15 while the people would wear black armbands, she added.—APP
