Pakistan is determined to resolve the Kashmir issue in the light of the Charter and declarations of the Security Council through the plebiscite.
Shanghai Cooperation Organization agreed to the viewpoint of Pakistan. Dr. Moeed Yousaf strictly maintained his viewpoint by the end of the meeting which was highly appreciated and accepted by the SCO.
Dr. Moeed Yousef said that Kashmir has never been the part of India nor it will. The walkout of Indian was a representation of the superiority of Pakistan’s viewpoint.
