On Thursday, Pakistan said that Indian security forces are using the chemical weapons on citizens in Kashmir, while the spokesperson of the Foreign office of Pakistan, Mohammad Faisal was quoted saying by Geo TV, “Pakistan strongly condemns Indian aggression… We want to resolve the Kashmir issue as per the wishes of the Kashmiri people”.
Earlier, Pakistan also said that India has deployed about 500,000 security forces in Jammu and Kashmir. Tensions are rising between two nuclear armed neighbors after a proposed meeting between the foreign ministers of India and Pakistan was called off by India last month.
India cancelled the proposed meeting citing the killing of its soldier at the International Border in Jammu and “glorifying terrorists and terrorism by Pakistan” on release of series of stamps on a terrorist that was killed by Indian security forces in an encounter in Kashmir.
