Iran Pakistan FMs

The Foreign Minister of Pakistan has called Iranian Foreign Minister to talk to him on the latest situation in Jammu and Kashmir.

The telephone conversation between Pakistan’s Shah Mahmood Qureshi and Iran’s Mohammad Javad Zarif was held on Tuesday.

Pakistani Foreign Ministry, in a statement, said the two Foreign Ministers agreed to remain engaged regarding the evolving situation.

Tensions in Jammu and Kashmir region have escalated after India scrapped the special status of its portion of Kashmir on August 5. New Delhi claimed that the decision was necessary for Kashmir’s economic development and to stop “terrorism.”

Pakistan, which disputes Kashmir with India, then expelled the Indian ambassador, halted bilateral trade, and suspended cross-border transport services.

Kashmir is divided between India, which rules the populous Kashmir Valley and the Hindu-dominated region around Jammu city, and Pakistan, which controls a piece of territory in the west.

India and Pakistan have fought three wars over the territory.
