‘Pak not changing status of Gilgit-Baltistan’
SRINAGAR: Pakistan’s Deputy Ambassador Syed Hyder Shah along with first secretary, on Wednesday, called upon ailing Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF) chairman Muhammad Yasin Malik at Delhi Fortis hospital.
Shah enquired about the health of Malik and also delivered message of good wishes from the government of Pakistan, said a JKLF spokesperson, in a statement issued here.
Shah also delivered a letter from prime minister of Pakistan Muhammad Nawaz Sharif, he said.
“The letter has been written in response to JKLF chairman Malik’s letter to Pakistani PM on January 12, 2016 in which he had asked Pakistan to refrain from changing the status of Gilgit and Balitisan as it would harm Jammu Kashmir issue,” he said.
In his reply, Sharif has assured JKLF chairman that there was no such plan.
Malik is admitted in Fortis hospital Delhi where he is being treated for his ailments.
Doctors are examining his health and so-far he has gone through various medical examinations, said the spokesman.
