Pakistan marks Kashmir Solidarity Day on 5 February. The Embassy of Pakistan to Azerbaijan organized a special event dedicated to Kashmir Solidarity Day in Baku.

Ambassador of Pakistan Mr. Saeed Khan Mohmand welcomed the guests and informed about the brief history of this significant day, which has been celebrated since 1991.

Mr. Ambassador delivered the messages of President of Pakistan Arif Alvi on this special day. In his message, Mr. Alvi condemned Indian illegal activities in Jammu and Kashmir

"It has been a battle of hope against overwhelming odds, of courage against fear, and of sacrifice against tyranny; but through all of it, the Kashmiri people have persisted, unrelenting and proud like they have always been, to deny India the perverse gratification of subjugating them," he said.

Dr. Alvi also stressed Indian decision for trying to deprive the Kashmiri people of their very identity on August 5 last year. 

"The world, however, has rejected India’s treacherous behavior and its sham democracy now stands exposed in front of the international community. Pakistan will continue to raise the issue of Jammu & Kashmir at every available forum," President Alvi said. 

He also expressed Pakistan's support to Jammu and Kashmir in every possible way.

Mr. Mohmand also voiced Prime Minister Imran Khan's message.

"Today, we observe the Kashmir Solidarity Day to reaffirm our unflinching support for our Kashmiri brothers and sisters who have been subjected to an inhuman lockdown and communications blockade for six months now."

In his message, Prime Minister expressed Pakistan's demand for the immediate lifting of the military siege and communications blackout as well as rescinding of India’s illegal and unilateral actions. 

"All those illegally arrested and incarcerated should be released and the draconian laws enabling impunity to Indian occupation forces be immediately repealed," he said. 

Ambassador touched upon the danger of conflict and escalation between two nuclear power. He expressed that their leadership approaches human rights organizations. Mr. Ambassador also called Indian decision on 5 August as illegal.

While answering journalists' questions, Mr. Ambassador emphasized the relations of Azerbaijan and Pakistan. He reminded the previous meeting of the President of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev with Prime Minister of Pakistan Imran Khan on the sidelines of World Economic Forum this year.

“Two leaders discussed the challenges that the two countries are facing. Ilham Aliyev briefed to Imran Khan the situation in Nagorno Karabakh and thanked for support. Prime Minister also informed about the situation in Indian occupied Jammu and Kashmir and thanked for Ilham Aliyev for the support that Azerbaijan has shown.”

Mr. Saeed Khan Mohmand expressed Pakistan's support to Azerbaijan on Nagorno Karabakh that Pakistan will never recognize the occupiers.
