The foreign minister informed the chairmen about the ongoing atrocities of Indian occupation forces, siege of the Kashmiris and worsening human rights situation.
He told that Pakistan had issued a 131 page dossier on the ongoing oppression in the Indian Illegally Occupied Jammu & Kashmir, adding in the dossier there was irrefutable evidence of war crimes of Indian officers.
