Ahead of the visit of Indian Prime Minister, Modi, to Pakistan, the country has labelled Kashmir to be a disputed territory.
Pakistani Prime Minister, Nawaz Sharif, recently visited India while Modi was being crowned as the Prime Minister. Both of them showed the world how these two countries, which are considered to be having disputes, can also live in harmony.
However, now that the Indian Prime Minister is about to visit Pakistan, Kashmir might become the bone of contention between the two parties. Last time the Kashmir issue was not highlighted throughout the time Mian Mohammad Nawaz Sharif was in India. However, once the topic is touched, many believe that the peace between the two countries might be distorted.
The foreign office spokesperson came out in the open and stated, “We do not accept the so-called accession of the State of Jammu and Kashmir to India. Kashmir is not an integral part of India. Our position is that Jammu and Kashmir is a disputed territory. People of the State of Jammu and Kashmir have yet to exercise their right to self determination which has been assured to them by almost 20 resolutions of the United Nations Security Council. Unfortunately, some of our nationals who have completed their primary sentence in India still remain in jails.”
