Pakistan on Saturday reiterated its call for a peaceful resolution of Kashmir and Palestine issues in accordance with the wishes of people.

Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi while addressing the virtual meeting of the Non-Aligned Movement (NAM) expressed his concerns over continued denial of self determination right to the people of Indian Occupied Jammu and Kashmir and Palestine.

“It is central to ensuring durable peace in South Asia and the Middle East,” he stated.

He also conveyed Pakistan’s deep concern on the deteriorating security situation in Nagorno-Karabakh region and called intensive shelling by Armenian forces on civilian populations of Azerbaijani villages ‘reprehensible’.

“Pakistan stands with the brotherly nation of Azerbaijan and supports its right of self-defence. We support Azerbaijan’s position on Nagorno-Karabakh, which is in line with the several UN Security Council resolutions,” the foreign minister told the summit.
