Pak taking unpleasant interest in imposing upon India their vicious motives: Khurshid

New Delhi, July 22 (ANI): Lashing out at Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif's Adviser on Foreign Affairs Sartaj Aziz for calling upon the international community to take appropriate steps to fulfil its commitments towards the people of Jammu and Kashmir under the UNSC resolutions, former union minister and senior Congress leader Salman Khurshid today said this is extremely unacceptable as Islamabad has been taking unpleasant interest in imposing upon India their vicious motives through the acts of terrorism.

"We do not expect it from anyone least of all from Pakistan, which has been seen in taking unpleasant interest in imposing upon India their vicious motives through acts of terrorism. And I think this is extremely unacceptable and in a very bad taste for Pakistan to be doing this," Khurshid told ANI

"Whatever Sartaj Aziz has tried to attempt to say is totally unacceptable. He should concentrate and comment on his country, what happens here is none of his concern," he added.

Aziz yesterday said that Pakistan has provided and will continue to provide diplomatic, political and moral support to the people of Jammu and Kashmir for realisation of their fundamental rights to self-determination in accordance with the UNSC resolutions.

He also mentioned Prime Minister Sharif's statement on the developments on the Indian side of Kashmir and the fact that Pakistan had lodged its protests with the Indian High Commissioner on the situation prevailing across the border.

He said that Pakistan has written letters to the UN Secretary General, President of the Security Council, OIC Secretary General, High Commissioner for Human Rights and the Foreign Ministers of the OIC Contact Group on Jammu and Kashmir (Azerbaijan, Niger, Saudi Arabia and Turkey) on the recent situation in Kashmir and called upon the international community to take appropriate steps to fulfil its commitments towards the people of Jammu and Kashmir under the UNSC resolutions.
