Pakistan president summons joint sitting of Parliament to discuss situation in Occupied Kashmir
President of Pakistan Arif Alvi on Monday summoned a joint session of the Parliament, to be held Tuesday, hours after India revoked Kashmir’s special status, stripping the significant autonomy the region has enjoyed for seven decades.
The Parliament members will discuss the current situation in Indian Occupied Kashmir, Associated Press of Pakistan (APP) reported citing a notification from the National Assembly Secretariat.
Meanwhile, Pakistani Minister of State for Parliamentary Affairs Ali Muhammad Khan said Tuesday that all the political leadership and nation in the country are on the same page as far as Kashmir dispute is concerned.
Speaking to Radio Pakistan, he said: “On behalf of the nation and government, I strongly condemn the resolution passed in India to alter the status of Indian Occupied Kashmir.”
The Indian government on Monday abolished Article 370 of the constitution, which gives special autonomy to the Muslim-majority region.
