Farooq’s statement shocking: Pak
‘Kashmir A Disputed Territory’
Islamabad, Sept 2: Terming as shocking the National Conference president Dr Farooq Abdullah’s statement that Kashmir is an integral part of India, Pakistan today said that Kashmir is a disputed territory to be resolved in accordance with the aspirations of the Kashmiri people.
“Kashmir is a disputed territory and the matter should be resolved in accordance with the aspirations of the Kashmiri people and the UN resolutions,” Pakistan foreign office spokesman Abdul Basit said at a media briefing here. He was responding to National Conference president Dr Farooq Abdullah’s statement that Kashmir is an integral part of India.
Replying to a question, the spokesman said that Chinese workers are engaged in Gilgit-Baltistan to help the flood affected people and extending assistance in the reopening of Karakorum highway which has been damaged by recent floods and landslides.
“The Chinese are also providing relief assistance to twenty five thousand people stranded at upper Attabad lake and we appreciate this humanitarian gesture on the part of Beijing,” he said.
Answering a question about investigation in Samjhota train incident, Abdul Basit said, “There has been no progress to account and hoped New Delhi will expedite the process to bring the perpetrators to book as 60 Pakistanis lost their lives in this incident.”
