India Wednesday criticised the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) for making “misleading references” to the Kashmir issue during its conclave, saying the bloc has no locus standi to comment on India’s internal matters.
Earlier this month, a meeting of Foreign Ministers of the OIC in Tashkent, in a resolution, severely criticised India for the unrest in in the Kashmir Valley.
“We note with extreme regret that the OIC has again chosen to comment on India’s internal affairs,” Ministry of External Affairs spokesperson Vikas Swarup said. He said certain resolutions adopted at the conclusion of the session contain “factually incorrect and misleading references” to matters internal to India, including J&K, which is an integral part of India. “We outrightly reject all such references,” he said.
