G20 summit in IIoJK, futile exercise on India's part: Kaira.

BAGH -- Advisor to the Prime Minister on Kashmir Affairs and Gilgit-Baltistan Qamar Zaman Kaira Monday said India could not hide worst human rights situation in Indian Illegally Occupied Jammu and Kashmir (IIoJK) by holding G-20 summit in the valley.

'By holding G-20 summit in IIoJK, India wants to convey a message to the world that all is good in the valley, but it will prove a futile exercise on New Delhi's part,' he said in an exclusive talk with reporter during his visit here.

He lashed out India for its ulterior motives behind the summit which was meant to deceive and mislead the world.

Modi government's intention was to dampen the morale of the people of Occupied Kashmir by creating a smokescreen before the world, he added.

He emphasized that the unwavering spirit of freedom among the Kashmiri people remained steadfast, and the entire Pakistani nation stood united in solidarity with Kashmiri brethren.

Under the leadership of Prime Minister Shahbaz Sharif and Foreign Minister Bilawal Bhutto Zardari, he said the entire Pakistani nation condemned holding of the summit in G-20.

Kaira said Pakistan's outreach to friendly countries and member states of G-20 had been bearing fruits as several countries had decided not to participate in the moot.
