Pakistan ratchets up pressure on India to undo Aug 5 move

In a telephonic conversation with his Bangladeshi counterpart Dr AK Abdul Momen, Foreign Minister Qureshi apprised him of the illegal and unilateral actions of India to alter the disputed status of Jammu and Kashmir, which is in contravention of the worldwide law and the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) resolutions, a foreign ministry press release said. Delhi said the change would help Kashmir's development, to the benefit of all, but its move angered many residents of the region and was strongly condemned by Pakistan.

In a stern statement issued yesterday, the British foreign secretary told the Indian government that the issue of human rights was an worldwide issue and not a bilateral one between Pakistan and India.

"Consular access was provided.in the presence of officials of the government of Pakistan", the statement read.

"On Indian request, there was no restriction on the language of communication". It however claimed that the convicted spy seemed to be "under extreme pressure" during the consular access.

The Indian High Commission in United Kingdom confirmed that the protests by Pakistani supporters on Tuesday were violent and caused damage to the premises. "We will not stop even if India restores the so-called Article 370", Haq said, adding, "Our struggle will continue till the liberation of Kashmir from the Indian occupation". - The retired naval officer has been on the death row in Pakistan since 2017.

Elkmont is located a few miles south of the Alabama-Tennessee line. "Please be in prayer for our school and community". Deputies stated they believe the teen used a 9 mm handgun in the shooting and tossed it before calling 911.


"We will decide a further course of action after receiving a detailed report from our Cd'A (charge d'affaires) and determining the extent of conformity to the ICJ directives", it added.

Pakistan Foreign Office had announced over the weekend that it would grant India consular access on September 2.

Before the meeting Monday, government sources said India had been seeking consular access to Jadhav for the last three years, ultimately winning a favourable ruling from the ICJ.

The foreign ministry's spokesman subsequently said on Twitter that the comments were being taken out of context and did not represent a change in Pakistan's nuclear policy. The court had ruled in July that India should be allowed consular access to Jadhav and stayed his execution.

Kumar said after the meeting that India is committed to ensuring that Jadhav "receives justice at the earliest and returns safely to India". "Commander Jadhav remains in Pakistan's custody, for espionage, terrorism and sabotage".
