Pakistan’s prime minister and president have offered support for rebels in the Indian part of the disputed Himalayan territory of Kashmir.
Pakistan is also holding rallies on Tuesday in the Pakistani-controlled sector of the territory and elsewhere in support of the Kashmiri rebels, marking the annual Day of Solidarity with Kashmir.
India and Pakistan each administer a part of Kashmir, but both claim the territory in its entirety.
Rebels have been fighting Indian rule since 1989, demanding Indian-controlled Kashmir be united either under Pakistani rule or established as an independent country.
Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan and President Arif Alvi in their statements condemned India’s violations of human rights in its section of Kashmir.
They say Pakistan would continue its “diplomatic and moral” support for people living in Kashmir.
