President of Pakistan Dr Arif Alvi has urged the International Community to take note of human rights violation in the Indian Illegally Occupied Jammu and Kashmir (IIOJK) wherein the Indian government has imposed the worst lockdown and the innocent people have been subjected to human rights abuses.
He expressed these views while talking to the President of the Inter-Parliamentary Union (IPU), Ms. Gabriela Cuevas Barron, who called on him, at Aiwan-e-Sadr, today.
The President Dr. Arif Alvi said that the people of IIOJK were in extreme misery as India had unleashed a reign of terror against the innocent people, which is a clear violation of UN resolutions.
He expressed the hope that IPU would play its role to protect the rights of the people of IIOJK. The President also apprised the visiting dignitary about the smart-lockdown policy of the government which successfully overcame the challenge of Covid-19 pandemic.
Ms. Gabriela Cuevas Barron said that her country wanted to work with Pakistan for promoting closer ties in areas of mutual interest. Both sides emphasized the need to further strengthen bilateral relations in all fields to the mutual benefit of the people of the two countries. The President expressed the hope that the visit of the President of IPU to Pakistan would help strengthen parliamentary relations between the Parliament of Pakistan and IPU member parliaments.
The meeting was also attended by the Chairman Senate, Muhammad Sadiq Sanjrani, and Senator Mirza Muhammad Afridi.
