Swaraj who addressed a press conference was flanked by MoS. External Affairs VK Singh and MJ Akbar and was replying to Pakistan PM Nawaz Sharif’s statements on the valley.
“J&K is a part of India and will be a part of India. Pakistan’s dream of making Kashmir its own will never be fulfilled. Pakistan has never given blessings to Kashmir, only gave terrorists,” Swaraj added.
Swaraj also slammed Pakistan for portraying Burhan Wani as a martyr and asked whether it doesn’t know that he is a terrorist.
“Pakistan is perpetrating terror activities through Hafiz Saeed and other terrorists in an area which is integral part of India,” Swaraj said.
Pakistan PM Sharif had on Friday said, “We are waiting for the day Kashmir becomes a part of Pakistan.”
“Their movement for freedom cannot be stopped and it will be successful. You are aware of how they are being beaten and killed. All our prayers are with them,” Sharif said.
Sharif had also sought the intervention of UNHRC over the unrest in the valley that claimed 46 lives and injured dozens post the death of Burhan Wani who was gunned down by security forces.
