ISLAMABAD: Pakistan’s parliament has adopted a resolution condemning India’s actions in the disputed region of Kashmir.
After a two-day session, the lawmakers unanimously on Friday backed the document denouncing the “brutal use of force” by Indian troops in the Indian-controlled part of the territory.
Many in the Indian-controlled portion, where violence and cross-border skirmishes have escalated in recent months, favor independence or a merger with Pakistan.
The resolution also rejected Indian accusation against Pakistan of an alleged involvement by Islamabad in a militant attack on an Indian base that killed 17 soldiers last month. The document also accused India of “sponsoring terrorism” in Pakistan. -AP
