Pakistan rejects J&K as India's integral part

Jammu and Kashmir
Islamabad, Jan 7: Pakistan on Friday said Jammu and Kashmir continues to be a disputed territory, rejecting India's assertion that the entire state is its integral part.

Foreign Office spokesman Abdul Basit made the remarks in response to a statement from India's External Affairs Ministry on January 4 regarding the incorrect depiction of the map of India on the website of the US State Department.

The government of Pakistan rejects the assertion made in the afore-mentioned statement that the entire state of Jammu and Kashmir is an integral part of India," Basit said.

"The correct position, as established by the United Nations in accordance with its relevant resolutions, is that the state of Jammu and Kashmir is a disputed territory, the final status of which is yet to be determined," he said.

The US State Department had subsequently corrected the map of India on its website.
