Pakistan not being isolated internationally: Sartaj Aziz

He said the entire worldwide community knew that no other country of the world could render many sacrifices which Pakistan did as far as terrorism is concerned, but India wants that Pakistan could not gain its credit in this regard. "They should have sent just one envoy with the right message of putting an end to cross-border terrorism", Swarup said.

"Sending out 22 envoys is not going to make untenable claims legal".

"The Prime Minister has called upon the UN Secretary General to send a fact finding mission to Kashmir stressing that Azad Kashmir can not be compared with Indian Occupied Kashmir having grim situation of human rights", he said.

Pakistan stands at the right place at all worldwide forums keeping in view the kind of alliances being formed in the world today, he said in an interview with BBC on Wednesday.

He said that that AJK remains open for any UN mission to visit as it has always facilitated the United Nations Military Observer Group in India and Pakistan (UNMOGIP), foreign diplomats and tourists. "The China-Pakistan Economic Corridor passes through Indian territory which is under the illegal occupation of Pakistan".

"We will continue to extend political and diplomatic support to Kashmiris till justice is done to the people of Kashmir and the brutalities against them are ended", he said. That is the real issue.

Foreign Office spokesperson Nafees Zakariya said that Sharif sent the letter to Ban Ki-Moon apprising him of the deteriorating situation in Kashmir.

The letter called Indian Prime Minister Narendra's remarks on Balochistan as unwarranted and in complete contravention of the United Nations charter. Atrocities being committed by the Indian forces in the valley have taken a heavy toll on the lives of the innocent Kashmiris who are demanding freedom from the clutches of India once and for all.

To a question about US Secretary of State John Kerry's statements in New Delhi, he said if he had been in Pakistan, his statements would have been different. "If talking about this is wrong, then many leaders of the world will have to stand in the dock.If we feel strongly about human rights violations happening in a particular part of the world, then we have every right to raise those concerns". Days later, Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif had tasked 22 parliamentarians with raking up Kashmir at the UN.
