24 November, 2009
ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Monday once again reminded India that Jammu and Kashmir is a disputed territory and it should be resolved and settled in accordance with the resolutions of United Nations.
Commenting on Indian Prime Minister Dr. Manmohan Singh’s remarks about Jammu and Kashmir in an interview with a US television channel, Foreign Office Spokesman Abdul Basit reminded India that Jammu and Kashmir is a disputed territory awaiting settlement in accordance with the relevant United Nations resolutions and aspirations of the people of Jammu and Kashmir.
The spokesman said, “India is only one of the parties to the dispute; it cannot, therefore, unilaterally change the status of the dispute or place preconditions in open contradiction to the right of self-determination of Kashmiris.”
