Sardar Masood Khan, President Azad Jammu and Kashmir during an extraordinary meeting of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation Contact Group of Kashmir, called on the eve of the 46th Session of the OIC-Council of Foreign Ministers (OIC-CFM) strongly condemned the dastardly and cowardly violation today by Indian aircraft of the Line of Control in Jammu and Kashmir and Pakistan’s air space.
The Pakistan Air Force successfully repulsed this stealthy maneuver, he said and added that the valiant and resolute people of Azad Kashmir and Pakistan are ready to foil such attempts and, while showing utmost restraint and responsibility, reserve their right to retaliate to defend themselves.
Such acts of desperation, said Masood Khan, highlight India’s illegal occupation of a part of Jammu and Kashmir and the threat it poses to international peace and security.
“The international community should step forward to stop the drums of war India is beating. Our message to India is: stop crimes against humanity in Kashmir, evacuate the territory and stay away from our sacred homeland”, said President Masood Khan at the OIC-Contact meeting.
Participants at the meeting unanimously condemned this act of aggression and called for a de-escalation in rising tensions in the region.
