ISLAMABAD: Following China, more countries have diplomatically isolated India, which is hosting the G20 tourism working group conference in Indian Illegally Occupied Jammu and Kashmir (IIOJK) in violation of international law.
China announced on Friday that it will not attend the G20 meeting, which is set to take place today (May 22), since it does not support conducting conferences in occupied territory.
“China vehemently opposes any form of G20 meeting on disputed territory.” We will not join such gatherings,” declared Chinese Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Wang Wenbin.
Following in the footsteps of China, Turkey, Saudi Arabia, and Egypt stated that they would not attend the meeting and did not register for it.
Turkey has repeatedly sided with Pakistan in the Kashmir dispute, raising the issue at numerous international venues.
Meanwhile, all political parties and freedom struggle groups in IIOJK have declared a total strike in the held valley for today.
According to a press release, Kashmiris on both sides of the Line of Control would observe a shutdown on May 22, while anti-India marches and rallies will be organized in all major capitals around the world in protest of the scheduled G20 conference in the UN-designated disputed region of IIOJK.
The All Parties Hurriyat Conference and the political leadership of Azad Jammu and Kashmir unanimously called for the strike and protests.
Bilawal is in AJK to show his support for Kashmiris.
Meanwhile, Foreign Minister Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari arrived in Muzaffarabad on Sunday for a three-day visit to express sympathy with Kashmiris in response to India’s breach of international law by hosting the G20 meeting in IIOJK.
“Through a conference, India cannot silence the voice of Kashmiris.” “By violating the UN resolution, India cannot play an effective role in the world,” Bilawal remarked during a press conference on the occasion.
Bilawal stated that he was invited to address the AJK assembly during India’s G20 meeting in occupied Kashmir. Those who believe that organizing a meeting will silence the voice of the people of occupied Kashmir will be proven mistaken, he continued.
“We are showing the world the true face of India.” I’ve come to show solidarity with my Kashmiri brothers and sisters.”
