Pakistan has once again offered India to appoint a lawyer for Indian spy commander Kulbhushan Yadav.
Foreign Office spokesperson Ayesha Farooqi said in a weekly media briefing said that as per the decision of the Islamabad High Court, diplomatic contact has been made with India but no reply has been received.
The Foreign Office spokesman termed the current political map as a matter of time, and said that the position on Kashmir has not changed. Pakistan’s political map negates the Indian map released last year, while Pakistan rejects India’s statement on the release of its political map, said FO.
Ayesha Farooqi added that Pakistan is a member of the OIC cabinet. “We have close ties with OIC countries. Since August 5, 2019, Pakistan has held three meetings with OIC on Kashmir.”
Pakistan wants resolution of Kashmir issue through UN resolutions, she said.
“There are a lot of expectations from the OIC, we want the OIC to play a leading role on the Kashmir issue,” she added.
The Foreign Office spokesman condemned the unprovoked firing by Afghan forces and said that they were determined to respond to any attack from Afghanistan.
On 5 August 2020, in the afternoon, terrorists operating from Afghanistan resorted to mortar and heavy weapons fire on Pakistan posts in Binshahi Sector, Dir. In the evening the Afghan Border Police Posts also started engaging Pakistan Army posts. Resultantly, one FC soldier embraced shahadat (martyrdom), while two soldiers were critically injured.
Foreign Office spokesman also confirmed that a Pakistani child had been killed in a bomb blast in the Lebanese capital, Beirut.
