On October 22, 1947, the Pakistan Army had invaded Jammu and Kashmir in violation of the Standstill Agreement that Maharaja Hari Singh, the then ruler of the state, had signed with both India and Pakistan. "If it continues, no power in the world will be able to protect Pakistan from disintegrating further", Rajnath Singh said.
Prime Minister Modi, during his meeting with President Trump in France last month, had categorically rejected any scope for third party mediation on Kashmir, saying it was a bilateral issue between India and Pakistan.
"You can see they're already getting discouraged". I said it's good because if they do, they'll not be able to go back to Pakistan.
"They should not commit the mistake of repeating 1965 and 1971".
The Indian media reported earlier this week that Prime Minister Modi will not talk about the annexation or its consequences in his address.
A statement by Pakistan's foreign ministry said it "strongly condemns and rejects" the Indian minister's remarks. "This terrorism bloodied Kashmir", he said.
"There is no doubt about it. [Business] activities will increase in the country and there will be enough investment in Pakistan", he said. "How many terrorists will it produce?"
Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan has warned citizens against joining the fight in Kashmir, saying the Indian authorities were waiting for "any excuse" to crack down on the residents in the Himalayan territory.
"Sindhi people have come here in Houston with a message".
The leadership of both countries will also discuss ways to strengthen economic ties between Pakistan and Saudi Arabia, during the visit, the PMO statement added.
Khan is expected to be in NY on Sunday evening when Trump will be addressing the joint rally with Modi. "The seven-day visit is aimed at drawing the attention of the world towards what is happening in Kashmir".
Talking with a delegation of Turkish journalists in capital Islamabad, the convener of All Parties Hurriyat Conference Azad Jammu and Kashmir chapter, Syed Abdullah Gilani, said Turkey and Pakistan are the two countries who raised voice and supported the Kashmiri people on every global forum.
Citing a 1994 resolution of Parliament which spoke about taking back PoK, Shah said, "We will give our lives" to ensure that.
"Pakistan should reflect upon its decision to deviate from well established worldwide practice, as well as reconsider its old habit of misrepresenting the reasons for taking unilateral action", he added in a statement.
