Foreign Office Spokesperson Tasnim Aslam has said “we condemn the brutal use of force by Indian security forces against peaceful and unarmed protesters, resulting in killing of two Kashmiri young men.”
She said the people and government of Pakistan extend their heartfelt sympathies and condolences to the families of the victims.
The spokesperson said that Pakistan will continue to extend political, diplomatic and moral support to Kashmiris.
She said the arrest of All Parties Hurriyat Conference leaders on false charges is also matter of concern. Brutality and coercion have not and will not succeed in suppressing the aspiration and struggle of Kashmiris for their right to self-determination, promised to them by the UN Security Council’s resolutions.
Pakistan has repeatedly stressed the need for peaceful resolution of the dispute through sustained and meaningful dialogue between Pakistan and India and in accordance with the wishes of Kashmiris.
