The Foreign Minister also apprised the Parliamentary leaders of AJK on the efforts being undertaken by the Government of Pakistan to highlight the massive atrocities being perpetrated by the Indian occupation forces in Indian occupied Jammu and Kashmir.The Foreign Minister reaffirmed Pakistan's moral, political and diplomatic support to the people of Indian occupied Jammu and Kashmir in their legitimate struggle for the right to self-determination in accordance with the United Nations Security Council Resolutions.The Foreign Minister deplored that instead of introspection, Indian Government and its media hurled baseless accusations against Pakistan, without any investigation.The delegation exchanged views with the Foreign Minister on the appalling situation of human rights in Indian occupied Jammu and Kashmir, particularly in the aftermath of the Pulwama attack.
