SRINAGAR: Pakistan Foreign Secretary Aizaz Ahmed Chaudhry on Monday said that the reaction to Indian ‘atrocities’ will keep surfacing in Indian Kashmir.
Briefing newsmen in New York after Nawaz Sharif’s meetings with world leaders and calls for intervention to stop human rights abuses in Kashmir, Chaudhry, according to Pakistan media, said that India cannot contain the momentum in Kashmir and that “incendiary statements” by the Indian leadership were threatening regional peace.
Speaking with regard to Nawaz-Kerry meeting, the foreign secretary has said the prime minister of Pakistan apprised Kerry of human rights violations in Kashmir.
He said the meeting also discussed other affairs including the situation in Afghanistan and Pakistan’s energy needs.
Secretary Kerry recognised Pakistan’s efforts in rooting out ‘terrorism’ from the region, he added.
Chaudhry said that India, instead of leveling allegations against Pakistan, should focus on resolving the longstanding Kashmir dispute.
Meanwhile, Pakistan’s permanent representative to the United Nations (UN) Maleeha Lodhi said that Pakistan would not take any pressure into account over the Kashmir issue.
“We will take up the issue of Indian atrocities in IHK at every forum,” she has asserted.
