Official Spokesperson on remarks by the so-called CM of Gilgit-Baltistan

January 01, 2010

In response to a question on certain remarks by the so-called Chief Minister of Gilgit-Baltistan the Official Spokesperson said,

"We have seen media reports regarding remarks of the so-called Chief Minister of Gilgit-Baltistan in which he said that Gilgit-Baltistan had become the ‘fifth province' of Pakistan and henceforth had no connection to Kashmir.

The entire state of Jammu and Kashmir is an integral part of India by virtue of its accession to India in 1947. Any action to alter the status of any part of the territory under the illegal occupation of Pakistan has no legal basis whatsoever, and is completely unacceptable.

Pakistan's actions regarding Gilgit-Baltistan in the past few months cannot camouflage its illegal occupation of part of the state of Jammu and Kashmir, nor can they hide the denial of basic rights to the people in that part for the past six decades. "
