British Parliament Resolution: Gilgit-Baltistan part of India’s J&K

London: Condemning Islamabad’s announcement declaring Gilgit-Baltistan as its fifth frontier, a motion was passed in the British Parliament, saying the region is a legal and constitutional part of Jammu & Kashmir illegally occupied by Pakistan since 1947.

The motion which was tabled on March 23 and sponsored by Conservative Party leader Bob Blackman

The motion which was tabled on March 23 and sponsored by Conservative Party leader Bob Blackman, stated that Pakistan, by making such an announcement, is implying its attempt to annex the already disputed area.

“Gilgit-Baltistan is a legal and constitutional part of the state of Jammu & Kashmir, India, which is illegally occupied by Pakistan since 1947, and where people are denied their fundamental rights including the right of freedom of expression,” the motion stated.

The motion further noted that the attempts to change the demography of the region was in violation of State Subject Ordinance and the ‘forced and illegal construction’ of the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) further aggravated and interfered with the disputed territory.
