The Centre for Strategic Perspectives (CSP) at the Institute of Strategic Studies, Islamabad (ISSI) hosted the 2nd International Parliamentary Kashmir Conference in collaboration with Jammu & Kashmir Self-Determination Movement International (JKSDMI) and Youth Parliament of Pakistan (YPP) to commemorate Kashmir Day on February 4, 2021.
The hybrid event brought together Pakistani policymakers, members of the Pakistan and UK Parliament, Kashmiri activists, and members of the Youth Parliament. Honorable Foreign Minister, Makhdoom Shah Mahmood Qureshi was the chief guest on the occasion. In a virtual address to the participants, the Foreign Minister said that since the brutal Indian siege of occupied Kashmir over the last eighteen months, the support for the people of Kashmir from across the board has been very praiseworthy. He said that the Kashmiri people are very resilient and determined despite the difficult circumstances. India, he said, has been involved in a disinformation campaign against Pakistan and the oppressed Kashmiri people. Pakistan is resolute in its support to the people of Indian occupied Kashmir and the victims of Indian state sponsored barbarism.
