India cries for Pakistan in CICA meeting, said – Kashmir and Ladakh are ours
new Delhi. India on Thursday criticized Pakistan for raising the issue of Kashmir in a digital meeting of the multilateral forum CICA and suggested Islamabad to stop supporting ‘direct and indirect’ cross-border terrorism. India said that Jammu and Kashmir and Ladakh belong to us and will remain ours.
Foreign Minister S.K. Jaishankar did. Reacting sharply, the Ministry of External Affairs said that Pakistan had misused another platform to express its misconceptions about India.
Significantly, Pakistan raised the issue of Kashmir in the Ministerial meeting of the Conference on Participation and Confidence Building Measures in Asia (CICA). CICA is an intergovernmental forum of 27 countries.
However, the Foreign Ministry said in its statement that Pakistan has no right to comment on India’s internal affairs. The Ministry emphasized that Jammu and Kashmir and Ladakh were, and always will be, an integral part of India.
The ministry said that Pakistan’s remarks today are serious interference in India’s internal affairs, sovereignty and territorial integrity, which is not in line with the guiding principles of the CICA Declaration.
The Foreign Ministry said that Pakistan is a global center of terrorism and remains the source of terrorist activities in India. He said that we suggest Pakistan to stop supporting ‘direct and indirect’ terrorism in India from across the border.
