RAWALPINDI – A six-member OIC delegation headed by Special Envoy of the OIC Secretary General for Jammu and Kashmir Yousef Aldobeay, visited Line of Control at Chakhoti on Wednesday.

The delegation was briefed on situation along the Line of Control, including Indian Ceasefire violations and targeting innocent civilian population.

Earlier today, Ambassador Al Dobeay called on Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan, who lauded Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) for extending unwavering support to the people of Indian Occupied Jammu and Kashmir, particularly in the aftermath of India's unilateral and illegal actions of 5 August 2019.

Welcoming the timely visit of the OIC delegation to Pakistan and AJK, the prime minister said that since 5 August 2019, 8 million Kashmiris continued to suffer under the lockdown and communications blackout, turning the entire IOJ&K as the world's largest open prison.

Imran Khan emphasized that the people of Pakistan as well as Kashmiris looked towards the OIC and Muslim Ummah for active support in the resolution of the Jammu and Kashmir dispute in accordance with the relevant UNSC resolutions.
