ISLAMABAD: The Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) has formally rejected India’s formal objection to Pakistan’s new political map. The Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) held an online meeting of national security advisers. India’s fierce claims were rejected and were defeated after formal objections to Pakistan’s new political map.
Ajit Doval, the national security adviser, representing India at the meeting, had formally raised the objection against Pakistan for displaying a political map as a background in yesterday’s session. He argued that Pakistan had shown “sovereign Indian territories” in its territories in the new political map. There is no legal right to claim the disputed territory as part of India.
Pakistan informed the SCO Secretariat that India’s illegal and unilateral actions in Indian-occupied Kashmir were in flagrant violation of the UN Charter and Security Council resolutions on the Jammu and Kashmir dispute. Pakistan stressed that the new political map represents Pakistan’s rights and the aspirations of the Kashmiri people. Pakistan is committed to resolving the Jammu and Kashmir dispute through a free and fair referendum by following the UN Charter and Security Council resolutions.
The SCO agreed with Pakistan’s position. Dr. Moeed Yousuf continued the discussion keeping the new political map of Pakistan clear in the background and maintained his position until the end of the meeting, which was not only accepted by the SCO as well welcome. Once again, India’s attempts to make a significant multilateral forum conditional on bilateral talks failed. A meeting of national security advisers from SCO member states highlighted a new political map of Pakistan and the Kashmiri people’s aspirations. The efforts of Pakistan’s solution were welcomed in SCO.
