The on Thursday dismissed any back channel diplomacy underway between Pakistan and India, saying it was out of question owing to worsening human rights situation in Indian Illegally Occupied Jammu and Kashmir (IIOJK). “Not at all in the circumstances we are. Not in the face of the brutality that is happening in IIOJK,” Foreign Office spokesperson said in her last weekly briefing with media after her successor Zahid Hafeez Chaudri was appointed on the position. Spokesperson Farooqui said the situation of IIOJK was deteriorating day by day and Pakistan would not consider any back channel diplomacy in current scenario. The FO spokesperson said Pakistan valued its longstanding relations with the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC), however, the “people of Pakistan had some expectations from the body over the Jammu and Kashmir dispute”.Asked about the remarks of Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi who mentioned the delay on the part of OIC to convene the meeting of Council of Foreign Ministers, she said Pakistan “acknowledged and deeply appreciated the OIC’s role in highlighting the issue”. She said three meetings of the OIC Contact Group on Jammu and Kashmir were held in one year, two of ministerial level.As regards Indian spy Kulbhushan Jadhav, Spokesperson Farooqui said Pakistan had conveyed India the August 3 directive of the Islamabad High Court (IHC). She said as per the IHC, India had been communicated through diplomatic channels for engaging a lawyer for its serving navy commander.The FO spokesperson said Wednesday’s meeting of the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) on Jammu and Kashmir was a clear testimony that the dispute was “neither an internal matter of India nor a bilateral issue, but a matter of international significance.” She rejected the impression that Pakistan’s new political map was a diversion from its 72-year-old stance.“Pakistan still supports the resolution of Jammu and Kashmir dispute in accordance with the resolutions of UNSC and as per the aspirations of Kashmiri people,” she said.On Afghanistan, she said Pakistan was committed to the resumption of peace and reconciliation process in its neighbouring country as “any delay would help the spoilers to inflict damage upon the situation”.She said the government was in touch with the stakeholders and interlocutors for early resumption of the Afghan peace process.She also rebuffing India’s objection stated that “it was not a contradiction to show Jammu and Kashmir in Pakistan’s [new] political map as part of Pakistan”.“Pakistan’s new political map negates the Indian map released last year,” she said, adding that Prime Minister Imran Khan’s address in Azad Jammu and Kashmir (AJK’s) Legislative Assembly was a gesture to express solidarity with Kashmiri people.She also said that the foreign minister also called on the international community to take notice of the situation in the occupied valley.“All over the world, voices were raised against Indian oppression in Occupied-Kashmir,” she said.“India’s unilateral move was rejected outright,” she maintained adding that Turkey and the OIC Human Rights Commission also expressed solidarity with the situation in IIOJK.Briefing the media over the situation of Pakistani families in Beirut, the FO spokesperson stated that two families were badly affected by the blast.“A teenager was martyred and the father and a sister are in critical condition in a hospital,” she said.Pakistan also reiterated its strong condemnation of construction of ‘Ram Mandir’ on the site where historic Babri Masjid stood for around five centuries.“The flawed judgement of the Indian Supreme Court paving the way for construction of the temple not only reflects the preponderance of faith over justice but also the growing majoritarianism in today’s India, where minorities, particularly Muslims and their places of worship, are increasingly under attack,” the FO spokesperson said.Meanwhile, Prime Minister Imran Khan on Thursday welcomed the UNSC for taking up the Jammu and Kashmir dispute and thanked its members for showing concerns over the human rights abuses in the Indian Illegally Occupied Jammu and Kashmir (IIOJK).“I welcome the UNSC for again taking up the Jammu & Kashmir dispute, which has been on its agenda for over 70 years,” the prime minister said on Twitter.
