OIC Resolution, forceful repudiation of India's legally flawed contention that Jammu and Kashmir is its internal matter: FO spokesperson.

ISLAMABAD -- Pakistan has welcomed the announcement regarding the agreement reached on rules and procedures by the Afghan parties in Doha.

Addressing weekly news briefing in Islamabad on Thursday, Foreign Office Spokesperson Zahid Hafeez Chaudhri said this is another significant step forward.

He said the agreement reflects a common resolve of the parties to secure a negotiated settlement.

He said it is an important development contributing towards a successful outcome of the intra-Afghan negotiations.

The Spokesperson said Pakistan will continue to support intra Afghan negotiations, culminating in an inclusive, broad-based and comprehensive political solution paving the way for a peaceful, stable and prosperous Afghanistan.

The Spokesperson condemned the assassination of Iranian scientist Mohsen Fakhrizadeh in Tehran.

Extending sincere condolences to the family members of Mohsen Fakhrizadeh and to the Iranian people, he said Pakistan strongly urges all sides to exercise maximum restraint and avoid further escalation of tensions in the region.

Highlighting the grave situation in Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, the Spokesperson called upon the international community to take cognizance of brutal suppression of the Kashmiri people's rights and freedoms in utter violation of international laws and conventions.

He said the world community must use all tools at its disposal to hold India accountable for its serious crimes against the Kashmiri people.

He urged the international community, particularly the United Nations counter-terrorism mechanisms, to act on the Pakistani Dossier providing irrefutable evidence of Indian state sponsorship of terrorism.

He underlined let me begin with the 47th Session of the Council of Foreign Ministers (CFM) of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) held in Niamey, Niger on 27- 28 November 2020.

During the two-day session, the OIC Council of Foreign Ministers discussed a wide range of issues confronting the Muslim world with particular focus on combating Islamophobia, Palestine and the Jammu and Kashmir dispute.

The Council of Foreign Ministers unanimously adopted a Resolution on Jammu and Kashmir reaffirming the OIC's consistent and principled stance on the dispute.
