“Azerbaijan, having lived through the period of occupation and experience of its territories, understands Pakistan on the issue of Jammu and Kashmir.”
“Report” reports that Pakistan’s ambassador to Azerbaijan Bilal Haye said this at a briefing held in Baku on the occasion of the Day of Solidarity with Kashmir celebrated in his country.
“August 5, a tragic day in the history of Jammu and Kashmir, is an important date for Pakistan. On this date in 2019, the residents of the province were deprived of their rights once recognized and protected by the Constitution of India,” he said.
B. Haye emphasized that the level of autonomy of Jammu and Kashmir and the right to adopt laws were abolished by the changes made to the Indian Constitution: “Azerbaijan, which has experienced the sad experience of occupation of its territories and knows well the hardships and horrors of war, takes a principled position on the issue of Jammu and Kashmir. “Both Azerbaijan and Pakistan always base the observance of norms and principles of international law.”
After the briefing, the press representatives and other guests got acquainted with the photo exhibition about the history of the Jammu and Kashmir conflict.
