ISLAMABAD: Foreign Office yesterday summoned a senior Indian diplomat and conveyed Pakistan s rejection of India s baseless and fallacious contention regarding the Supreme Court of Pakistan s verdict in a matter pertaining to Gilgit-Baltistan.
According to a statement issued on Monday, Foreign Office Spokesperson said that it was clearly conveyed that the Indian claim over the occupied state of Jammu and Kashmir as an “integral part” had no legal basis whatsoever. “The entire state of Jammu and Kashmir is a disputed territory and is recognized as such by the international community. “No subsequent illegal and unilateral Indian actions could or have altered the status of Jammu and Kashmir as a disputed territory,” the FO said. —Agencies
