Not have enough evidence on Kashmir issue to move ICJ, says Pakistan ICJ lawyer


Pakistan’s lawyer in the International Court of Justice (ICJ) has said that Imran Khan government does not have significant evidence on Kashmir issue to back its claims of genocide in Kashmir to move to ICJ.

“In absence of these evidences, it is extremely difficult for Pakistan to take this case to the ICJ,” said Khawar Qureshi.

Pakistan has threatened to approach the ICJ over the Kashmir issue while also approaching the United Nations with an aim to internationalise the Kashmir matter.

Imran Khan has knocked on the doors of several countries in the world, including the United States and spoke to President Donald Trump after which Trump offered to mediate in the matter.

Recently, Prime Minister Narendra Modi met Trump at the G7 Summit in France after which both the leaders agreed with India’s stand that Kashmir is a bilateral matter between India and Pakistan with no scope for any third party mediation.

Hours after PM Modi and Trump’s meeting in France, Imran Khan addressed Pakistan and said that he will raise the Kashmir issue at every international forum, including the UN General Assembly. Imran Khan assured the people of Pakistan that his government will stand by the Kashmiris till India lifts the restrictions in the Valley.
