Pakistan: India’s statements unwarranted

Nirupama Subramanian

ISLAMABAD: Pakistan angrily rejected India’s statements against the Gilgit-Baltistan elections on Friday as “unwarranted” and said a U.N. Security Council-mandated plebiscite was the “just solution” to the Kashmir issue.

“These remarks are unwarranted. The government of India has no locus standi in the matter,” the Foreign Ministry here said, responding to remarks by the External Affairs spokesman that the Gilgit-Baltistan elections were a “cosmetic exercise” by Pakistan to “camouflage [its] illegal occupation” of parts of Jammu & Kashmir State.

“As for the Jammu and Kashmir dispute, it stems from India’s refusal to implement the relevant Security Council Resolutions, which provide for a just solution of the dispute through the democratic method of a free and fair plebiscite,” the Foreign Ministry said in a statement.
