F.P. Report

ISLAMABAD: Pakistan has strongly condemned the continuing extra judicial killings by Indian occupation forces in fake encounters and phony cordon and search operations in Indian Occupied Jammu and Kashmir.

In the televised opening statement of the weekly news briefing, Foreign Office Spokesperson Aisha Farooqui said today is the 284th day of the continued oppression, deliberate acts of terrorizing, inhuman lockdown and military siege faced by the innocent people in occupied Kashmir.

She called upon the international community to take immediate notice of the alarming situation in occupied Kashmir and hold India accountable for state-terrorism, extra-judicial killings, and gross and systematic violations of human rights.

She said it is a shared responsibility of world community to seek immediate resolution of the Jammu and Kashmir dispute in accordance with the relevant UNSC Resolutions and aspirations of the Kashmiri people.

Regarding the framework agreement by Israel’s coalition government proposing annexation of the West Bank, the Spokesperson said Pakistan always opposed any move for annexation of the occupied Palestinian territories as it would be a serious violation of international law and a dangerous escalation in an already volatile situation. She reiterated Pakistan’s consistent support for the two-state solution of the Palestine issue as enshrined in the relevant Security Council and General Assembly Resolutions.

Aisha Farooqui said Pakistan condemns the cowardly terrorist attack on a medical facility in Kabul as well as the suicide attack at a funeral in Nangarhar province, which resulted in loss of precious lives.

The Spokesperson said our embassies and consulates are working round the clock in facilitating repatriation of our citizens back home.

She said so far 24,466 have been repatriated from more than 35 countries. She said weekly number of nationals returning home has been steadily increased from 2000 to about 7000 per week.
