ISLAMABAD: On Monday, opposition parties will hold an All Parties Conference (APC) to discuss the scenario in Indian occupied Kashmir and the country’s political condition.
The meeting will be chaired by Maulana Fazlur Rehman, JUI-F chief, and will be attended by PPP and PML-N top officials. The meeting will not be attended by Opposition Leader at the National Assembly Shehbaz Sharif and PPP Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari.
The APC agenda was discussed last night by Bilawal Bhutto Zardari and Maulana Fazlur Rehman.
Earlier this month, India abolished Article 370 by a presidential decree, which awarded the occupied Kashmir unique status. Since then, New Delhi has retained a valley curfew with a full blackout of communication.
In over five centuries, leaders of the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) gathered last week to address the critical situation in occupied Indian Kashmir, encouraging sides to argue to refrain from adopting any unilateral intervention.
The Permanent Representative of Pakistan to the United Nations, Maleeha Lodhi, greeted the session of the UNSC and said that the nation was “thankful to China for calling the session.”
“The voice of the Kashmiri people was heard today. The fact that this meeting took place testifies to the fact that this is an internationally recognized dispute, which reaffirmed the validity of the UNSC resolutions on the status of Jammu and Kashmir,” she said after the meeting, speaking to reporters.
