Pakistan today said that the reference to PoK in a UN report on alleged rights violations should in no way be construed to create a "false sense of equivalence" with Kashmir.

The UN today released the first-ever report on alleged human rights violations in both Kashmir and Pakistan-occupied Kashmir, as it demanded an international inquiry.

"This proposal is consistent with Pakistan's several calls to this effect since 2016, even as India has continued to ignore legitimate demands for a probe into gross and systematic violations...," the Foreign Office said in a statement.

The FO said that the reference towards Pakistan-administered part of Kashmir, including Gilgit-Baltistan "should in no way be construed to create a false sense of equivalence" with rights violations in Kashmir.

The FO said that the High Commissioner for Human Rights' report rightly called for a final political solution of the Jammu and Kashmir dispute through meaningful dialogue that includes the people of Kashmir.

Pakistan said that the lasting solution of the Jammu & Kashmir dispute is an essential imperative for peace, security and stability of South Asia and beyond.

"India's continued denial of this imperative, its unwillingness to engage in a dialogue process with Pakistan and suppression of Kashmiri aspirations for freedom continue to endanger regional and international peace and security," it alleged.
