Islamabad, April 19, 2015 (PPI-OT): Pakistan is deeply concerned at the increase in systematic human rights violations in the Indian Occupied Kashmir We condemn the brutal use of force by Indian security forces against peaceful and unarmed protesters, resulting in the killing of two Kashmiri youngmen. The people and Government of Pakistan extend our heartfelt sympathies and condolences to the families of the victims.
Equally, the arrest of APHC leaders on false charges is 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 UNSC 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. Pakistan will continue to extend political, diplomatic and moral support to Kashmiris.
