Pakistan rejects India’s ‘unwarranted’ statement, says GB reforms reflect will of the people

ISLAMABAD: Pakistan on Sunday categorically rejected the “irresponsible and unwarranted” statement regarding Gilgit-Baltistan by the Indian Ministry of External Affairs, saying that reforms announced by the government for the region reflect the will of the indigenous population.

“Administrative, political and economic reforms are a long-standing demand of the people of Gilgit-Baltistan. The envisaged provisional reforms reflect the aspirations of the indigenous populace of Gilgit-Baltistan,” read a statement issued by the Foreign Office.

“India has no locus standi whatsoever on the issue — legal, moral or historical,” the statement added.
