Islamabad:

Pakistan on Friday said that it is committed to peacefully resolving the Kashmir issue and will extend its political and diplomatic support to the people of the Valley.

Pakistan’s Foreign Office, in a statement, accused the Indian security forces of using live ammunition and pellet guns against Kashmiris.

It said the “deteriorating human rights situation” in the Valley has serious implications for the regional peace and security.

“Pakistan remains committed to peacefully resolving the Jammu and Kashmir dispute in accordance with the resolutions of the UN Security Council and will continue to extend its moral, political and diplomatic support to the people of Jammu and Kashmir,” it said amid escalating tensions between India and Pakistan along the Line of Control (LoC).

It called upon the “international community to take notice of the grave human rights crisis” in the Valley.
