MINSK, 22 August (BelTA) – Belarus and Pakistan have plans to hold a session of the intergovernmental commission for trade and economic cooperation in the nearest future, BelTA learned from Charge d' Affaires a.i of the Islamic Republic of Pakistan to Belarus Muhammad Abdullah Amin.
It is important for Pakistan to maintain comprehensive cooperation with Belarus. In this regard, the head of the Pakistani diplomatic mission emphasized the important role of the meeting between Belarus President Aleksandr Lukashenko and Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan on the sidelines of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization Summit in Bishkek in June 2019. Back then, the head of the Pakistani government underlined that Pakistan is changing and so is the way the country is governed; Pakistan is opening up and these transformations will be very instrumental in building strong ties with Belarus.
Muhammad Abdullah Amin emphasized the importance of maintaining stability in the region and touched upon the situation in Kashmir. He believes that all the Kashmir-related matters should be resolved in compliance with the UN Security Council resolutions. India and Pakistan have been locked in a struggle over the disputed territory of Kashmir for a long time. The situation escalated on 5 August when India announced its decision to strip India-administered Kashmir of its special status and split it into two territories (Jammu and Kashmir) governed directly by Delhi. India's government revoked part of the constitution that gave Indian-administered Kashmir its special status. Pakistan requested the UN Security Council meeting to discuss the situation.
Muhammad Abdullah Amin noted that Pakistan supports Kashmiris in realization of their right to self-determination.More about Politics
