Pakistan’s law ministry rejected PM Imran Khan’s proposal to take the Kashmir matter to the International Court of Justice (ICJ). Pakistan PM Imran Khan had earlier expressed interest to drag India to the ICJ over India’s so-called annexation of Jammu and Kashmir.
Pakistan’s law ministry stated that there was no such agreement between Pakistan and India regarding taking Kashmir issue to the ICJ. However, the ministry suggested that PM Khan could raise the matter in the United Nations General Assembly or the Security Council so that it can be referred to the ICJ through a proper channel.
Earlier, Pakistan’s Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi said that Islamabad had decided to take Kashmir case to the ICJ. He had said that the decision was taken after analysing legal aspects.
On Friday, Imran Khan held a rally in Muzaffarabad to show solidarity with the people in Kashmir. Imran Khan also said that he was going to address the United Nations General Assembly next week. “And I will not disappoint the people of Kashmir,” Khan said.
