Jeddah

Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi said on Tuesday that the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation recognised that the Indian government’s aggression [revoking Article 370 and 35A] put more than 1.5 billion people of South Asia at risk. A session of the OIC took place on Tuesday in Jeddah to discuss the developments regarding occupied Kashmir. The foreign minister took to Twitter to share the development after the meeting.
“I reiterated Pakistan’s stance on the peaceful resolution of Jammu and Kashmir dispute and that India’s hostility doesn’t give me much hope for a covenant for peace.” The foreign minister, in a series of tweets, said, “Pakistan asks the OIC to show solidarity — through action — with the people of occupied Kashmir by recognising that this unilateral step by India was against the very status of the region as enshrined in the United Nations Security Council resolutions.”
Qureshi said that he called on the OIC to convene an emergency meeting of the OIC contact group on occupied Kashmir, “who share our grave concerns over Indian aggression in the region.”
