China on Friday said its economic corridor to Pakistan wouldn't affect its stand on the Kashmir issue, as it parried suggestions that it had a role in Pakistan's recent move to turn the disputed Gilgit Baltistan region into a province.
It began with the Pakistani law minister making a statement on the Kashmir situation speaking at its high-level segment on 1 March, stating that "the Indian claim that the deteriorating human rights situation in Jammu and Kashmir is an internal affair of India is factually incorrect, legally untenable and in violation of the UN Security Council resolution".
It may be mentioned the people of the region fought their own war against Dogra Raj as the British rule came to an end in 1947.
To declare Gilgit-Baltistan as the fifth province would also require a constitutional amendment, which would need to be ratified by the Pakistani Parliament.
"The position of the government on Jammu and Kashmir is consistent and well known".
Pakistan had earlier said that "the repression in Jammu and Kashmir is the most reprehensible manifestation of the flogging of human rights and the unleashing of violence by an increasingly communal and extremist state". "No unilateral step is acceptable in this regard", MEA spokesperson Gopal Baglay said. "We also demand that Pakistan must fulfil its obligation to vacate illegal occupation of Pakistan-occupied Kashmir (PoK)", Ms Chakrabarti said.
Kashmiri made these remarks during the anti-Pakistan protest by activists from Pakistan Occupied Kashmir (PoK), Gilgit, Balochistan and Sindh in front of the United Nations Headquarters in Geneva.
