Pakistan To Take Kashmir Issue to International Court Of Justice: Reports
"We have decided to take Kashmir case to the International Court of Justice," a Reuters report quoted Pakistan Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi, who told this to a local channel.
New Delhi: Over India's decision to end special status to Jammu and Kashmir, Pakistan will approach the International Court of Justice , news agency Reuters reported. "We have decided to take Kashmir case to the ICJ (International Court of Justice)," a Reuters report quoted Pakistan Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi, who further told this to a local channels.
"The decision was taken after considering all legal aspects," he added.
Last week, Pakistan approached the United Nations Security Council over India's Kashmir move. After a closed-door meeting, most of the members of the powerful group supported India's position that Kashmir was a bilateral matter.
The Decision comes a day after Pakistan PM Imran Khan dubbed the Indian government "fascist" and "racist" in a series of tweets.
The World must also seriously consider the safety & security of India's nuclear arsenal in the control of the fascist, racist Hindu Supremacist Modi Govt. This is an issue that impacts not just the region but the world.— Imran Khan (@ImranKhanPTI) August 18, 2019
Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday had a 30-minute telephonic conversation with US President Donald Trump. Besides bilateral issues, the two leaders discussed the regional situation, during which the Prime Minister "stated that extreme rhetoric and incitement to anti-India violence by certain leaders in the region was not conducive to peace," the government said.
The White House today said President Trump dialed Imran Khan soon after talking with PM Modi.
"Spoke to my two good friends, Prime Minister Modi of India, and Prime Minister Khan of Pakistan, regarding Trade, Strategic Partnerships and, most importantly, for India and Pakistan to work towards reducing tensions in Kashmir. A tough situation, but good conversations!" Mr Trump later tweeted.
In 2017, India had moved the world court against Pakistan over death sentence to former naval officer Kulbhushan Jadhav on allegations of "espionage". The ICJ last month ruled in India's favour, asking Pakistan to review the death sentence.
