On a day when the Kashmir issue was raised at two international forums, National Security Adviser (NSA) Ajit Doval walked out of a virtual meeting of SCO NSAs after Pakistan’s representative sat before a “new” political map that showed Kashmir and Junagadh as part of its territory. The SCO held its online meeting of National Security Advisors and rejected India’s claim. India – which is being represented by Ajit Doval – had raised an objection against Pakistan on the display of the political map by falsely claiming that the new map showed ‘sovereign Indian territories’ as part of Pakistan. Pakistan responded that India, under international law, had no legal rights to claim the internationally recognised disputed territory of Indian Illegally Occupied Jammu & Kashmir (IIOJ&K) as part of India.Furthermore, Islamabad rejected New Delhi’s assertions that the newly released map included any part of Indian territory. Referring to India’s illegal actions in IIOJ&K, Pakistan informed the SCO secretariat that India is violating the UN Charter and United Nations Security Council (UNSC) resolutions.Pakistan reiterated that the new political map represented the country’s rights and the aspirations of the Kashmiri people. The map reaffirms Pakistan’s commitment to seeking a resolution of the Kashmir dispute through a free and impartial plebiscite in accordance with the UN Charter and UNSC resolutions.
