Islamabad: India's Prime Minister, Narendra Modi, is facing challenges in normalizing the controversial actions taken in August 2019, as several countries, including China, Turkey, and Egypt, have decided not to participate in the G20 summit in Srinagar, located in the disputed region of Occupied Valley.
The Indian government's efforts to host a tourism conference have been hindered, with a number of G20 countries either declining to attend or not registering for the event.
Turkey, which has consistently shown support for Pakistan in the Kashmir dispute, has raised the issue at international platforms such as the United Nations General Assembly and the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC). Turkey has called for increased international involvement in finding a solution and addressing human rights concerns in Kashmir.
In addition to the G20 members, representatives from various international institutions and guest nations have also been invited. Although India extended an invitation to Egypt, the country from the Middle East chose not to register for the G20 summit.
Pakistan has expressed its opposition to the G20 summit being held in Srinagar. The Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MOFA) issued a statement rejecting any such attempt by India. Pakistan asserts that Jammu and Kashmir is an internationally recognized disputed territory between Pakistan and India, which has been under India's forcible and illegal occupation since 1947. Pakistan accuses India of committing widespread atrocities and human rights violations in the region.
The statement also highlights that since India's actions in August 2019, Indian forces have allegedly killed 639 Kashmiri civilians in extrajudicial killings. Reports from the United Nations, including those commissioned by the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights, have reiterated the claims of Indian atrocities against the Kashmiri people.
Furthermore, Pakistan accuses India of attempting to alter the demographic structure of the occupied territory, which violates relevant UN Security Council resolutions, international law, and the 4th Geneva Convention.
Pakistan strongly believes that any proposal by India to hold a G20 meeting or event in the disputed territory would be a disregard for its internationally acknowledged status. Pakistan calls on the international community to reject such a proposal and urges India to end its human rights violations, revoke its unilateral actions of August 2019, and release all political prisoners in Jammu and Kashmir.
According to Pakistan, the only path to lasting peace in South Asia is by granting the people of Indian Illegally Occupied Jammu and Kashmir their right to self-determination, as promised in relevant UN Security Council resolutions.
