Newsroom24x7 Network

New Delhi: Saudi Arabia has turned down Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan’s demand for a discussion on Kashmir at the meeting of senior officials of Organisation of Islamic Cooperation scheduled in Jeddah on 9 February ahead of the council of foreign ministers, according to a report published by Dawn, the Pakistani daily newspaper.

In December last year, it was widely reported that Riyadh had agreed to the Pakiatani call for a meeting of the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (IOC) foreign ministers to discuss the Kashmir situation, especially keeping in focus the withdrawal of special status to the erstwhile State of Jammu and Kashmir under Article 370 of the Indian Constitution.

In a hard-hitting commentary, Newsroom24x7 had condemned the Pakistani move for talks on Kashmir by OIC. The Indian government also took a strong position in this regard.
