ISLAMABAD: Pakistan’s Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi said on Wednesday that people of Indian-administered Kashmir were expectantly looking at the international community, particularly the Muslim world, to help them get rid of “Indian atrocities” in the disputed Himalayan territory.
According to an official handout circulated by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Qureshi expressed these views while interacting with his Saudi counterpart, Faisal bin Farhan bin Abdullah, in Riyadh.
The two officials also discussed the bilateral relations between their countries and talked about the prevailing global and regional situation.
Qureshi briefed the Saudi foreign minister on the ongoing state of affairs in Indian-administered Kashmir, pointing out that New Delhi had deprived its residents of their basic human rights for nearly four months.
The two sides pledged to strengthen their diverse relations and continue to work for regional peace and stability.
Last week, representatives of the Saudi Shoura Council, led by the chairman Dr. Abdullah Bin Mohammed Al-Sheikh, arrived in Pakistan for meetings with the country’s top political leadership and members of parliament.
During one of the meetings, Prime Minister Imran Khan reaffirmed his commitment to deepen bilateral ties, and lauded the growing cooperation between the National Assembly and Saudi Shoura Council.
