AHEAD OF MODI’S VISIT TO J&K, PAK CALLS KASHMIR ‘DISPUTED TERRITORY’

NEW DELHI/ISLAMABAD (TIP): Needling India ahead of Narendra Modi’s first visit to Jammu & Kashmir as Prime Minister, Pakistan on Thursday harped on Kashmir being a “disputed territory”. “We do not accept the so-called accession of the State of Jammu & Kashmir to India. Kashmir is not an integral part of India.

Our position is that Jammu & Kashmir is a disputed territory,” foreign office spokesperson Tasnim Aslam said during a briefing. Her remarks came on the eve of Modi’s one-day visit to Jammu and Srinagar. “People of the State of Jammu & Kashmir have yet to exercise their right to self determination which has been assured to them by almost 20 resolutions of the United Nations Security Council,” Aslam said in response to a question on Modi’s visit to the state. Pakistan’s contention has been outrightly rejected by India which has asserted that J&K is its integral part.
