Pakistan, on Monday, categorically rejected the untenable statement by the Indian Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) on the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) Resolution on the Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir dispute.

The foreign office in a statement said, "The latest OIC Resolution is another forceful repudiation of India’s completely flimsy and legally untenable contention that Jammu and Kashmir is its ‘internal’ matter. The OIC Resolution is further proof that India can neither hide its gross and systemic violations of human rights of the Kashmiri people and the denial of their inalienable right to self-determination nor can it escape international censure of its egregious behavior."

Pakistan warned India that rather than dismissing the international community’s concerns as reflected in the OIC Resolution, India should pay heed and stop its state-terrorism in Indian Illegally Occupied Jammu and Kashmir (IIOJK); end its illegal and forcible occupation of IIOJK, and take concrete steps towards the solution of the Jammu & Kashmir dispute in accordance with the UN Security Council resolutions and the wishes of the Kashmiri people.

The OIC had unanimously adopted the Kashmir resolution at the 47th Session of OIC Council of Foreign Ministers (CFM), held in Niamey, Niger, on 28 November 2020. By passing the resolution, the OIC has reaffirmed its support for the Jammu & Kashmir dispute.

Indian Ministry of External Affairs had rejected the resolution, calling it "factually incorrect, gratuitous & unwarranted."
