New Delhi, July 15: In response to Pakistan’s plan to observe July 19 as a black day to express solidarity with people of Kashmir, India on Friday condemned the action calling it attempts to interfere in internal matter of country. A special SIT meeting was scheduled in Lahore on Friday by Prime Minister Nawaz Shariz to discuss the situation in Kashmir.
During the meeting Sharif said that Pakistan would continue to extend moral, political and diplomatic support for Kashmiris in their just struggle for right to self-determination. Addressing Burwan Wani as a martyr, he said, "Indian brutalities will give impetus to the freedom struggle and Kashmiri people will get their right to self-determination for which the whole Pakistani nation is standing behind them." He also directed all the relevant departments to highlight the Kashmir issue at international fora.
Giving a strong criticizing reply for this meeting, Indian Foreign affairs spokesperson Vikas Swarup issued India’s reply to cabinet meeting. “India completely and unequivocally rejects in entirely the decisions adopted by the Cabinet of Pakistan on the situation in Jammu and Kashmir. We are dismayed at the continued attempts by Pakistan to interfere in our internal matters, where India reiterates that Pakistan or any other external party has no locus standi”. said the statement.
“Continued glorication of terrorists belonging to proscribed terrorist organizations makes it amply clear where Pakistan’s sympathies continue to lie. The self serving actions by Pakistan in the last few days to derive political mileage out of the recent developments in Jammu and Kashmir follow planned infiltration and terrorism aimed at India from across the LOC and the international boundary”. The statement further said.
Advising Pakistan to not interfere in internal matter of India, the statement said “The attempts in Pakistan by various J&K in the run up to the so called elections in territories under the Pakistan’s illegal occupation will not succeed. We hope that Pakistan will desist from further interfere in India’s internal affairs and destabilizing the situation in South Asia through support to terrorism and other subversive acts. We also hope that Pakistan will respond constructively to India’s initiatives for peace and normalizing the India Pakistan relationship”.
