Saudi, UAE FMs arrive in Pakistan for talks on Kashmir

Saudi, UAE FMs arrive in Pakistan for talks on Kashmir”

Pakistani army spokesman Major General Asif Ghafoor said on Wednesday that the military will "fight to the last bullet and the last soldier" if all peaceful options fail to resolve the Kashmir issue.

Tensions across the LoC heightened in recent weeks after the Indian government scrapped the special status of Jammu and Kashmir on August 5.

Qureshi appraised his counterparts of the latest situation in Kashmir, stressing that Indian actions were in violation of United Nations Security Council resolutions and worldwide law, and posed a serious threat to peace and security. Some protesters said Khan was hit by a tear gas canister, though authorities suspected a stone struck him, Singh said, adding that the matter is under investigation.

Media have reported at least two other deaths during protests, but authorities have denied that.

Recently, tensions have once again flared between Pakistan and India after New Delhi on August 5 revoked the constitutional autonomy of the part of the disputed region of Kashmir that it administers and moved to quell objections by shutting down communications and clamping down on local leaders.

Last week, ahead of their meeting on the sidelines of G7 summit, Prime Minister Narendra Modi had spoken to his British counterpart Boris Johnson and raised the issue of violent protests that took place outside the Indian High Commission. Prime Minister Imran Khan further underscored that India's actions were a clear violation of UN Security Council resolutions and worldwide law.

On Wednesday, the foreign ministers of Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates met with Khan in Islamabad to discuss Kashmir.

The visiting ministers also held a meeting with Pakistani Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi whose office said in a statement that the current situation in Kashmir and the security situation in the region came under discussion between the foreign ministers.

"They have promised their complete support, which is a good development", he said.

India and Pakistan both hold Kashmir in parts and claim it in full.

A protest march by thousands of British Pakistani participants turned violent in London on Tuesday after demonstrators smashed windows of the Indian High Commission and proceeded to create a public disturbance, making it the second such incident in the United Kingdom capital since August. "Some of them are getting eliminated, some of them are getting foiled and they are returning back to the Pakistani army post from where they were launched", he claimed.

"Pakistan is attempting infiltration every night", Lieutenant-General K.J.S. Dhillon told a briefing.
