Pakistan’s latest political map accepted by PM Imran contains Indian occupied Kashmir
Prime Minister Imran Khan declared the adoption of a modern regional map of Pakistan that covers completely Indian-occupied Kashmir. The approval was granted earlier today in a Cabinet meeting chaired by PM Imran during which the participants were told of the current situation in the occupied Muslim majority area.
Speaking to the country during a live televised speech, the Premier revealed specifics of the Cabinet meeting’s decisions. “This is the most important day in history that we are showing to the world a modern political map of Pakistan,” he added.
“The cabinet accepted the map,” he said, adding that it was also Green-signaled by the Kashmiri and national leadership. He said that the latest map will now be included in schools and colleges too. The permanent status of “Indian Illegally Occupied Jammu and Kashmir” was to be determined, read the map, in compliance with the applicable UNSC resolution.
Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi clarified the adjustments made to the current map, claiming it represented the citizens of Pakistan’s will and expectations. Qureshi congratulated the incumbent government on launching a nation map that included Gilgit-Baltistan, Azad Jammu and Kashmir as well.
“Pakistan today made it clear that we condemn the strategies of India, and that Islamabad is ready for a diplomatic settlement to the contested territories — Gilgit Baltistan and Kashmir,” he added. “The first item this chart shows are that the answer to Kashmir must come from Resolution [of 1948] of the United Nations Security Council, which was written on the globe.
Qureshi said India made such statements in an attempt to grab some acres of land that was the exclusive economic zone of Pakistan. Within the diagram, he said, the former FATA was fused with the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa region. The minister said the Cabinet, the leadership of Kashmir, and the government of Pakistan welcomed this move, adding that it “assures Kashmiris that Pakistan is behind them.”
