France says Kashmir bilateral issue between India and Pakistan

“The decision was taken after considering all legal aspects,” says Foreign Minister Qureshi. — AFP  File

His comments came as Pakistan said three of its civilians died in Indian gunfire from across the de facto border in Kashmir known as the Line of Control.

"I will do the best I can to mediate or do something".

"Spoke to my two good friends, Prime Minister Modi of India, and Prime Minister Khan of Pakistan, regarding Trade, Strategic Partnerships and, most importantly, for India and Pakistan to work towards reducing tensions in Kashmir", Trump tweeted.

Punjab Assembly in a resolution has condemned Indian atrocities in Occupied Jammu and Kashmir and Indian unilateral step of abrogating the special status of Occupied Kashmir. I wouldn't say they get along so great.

People chant slogans to observe Black Day over India's decision to revoke the special status of Jammu and Kashmir, during a protest in Peshawar, Pakistan, Aug. 15, 2019.

Meanwhile, US President Donald Trump on Monday reiterated that the ongoing tension between India and Pakistan must be reduced.

He informed the committee that Pakistan would also be raising the Kashmir issue at the United Nations Human Rights Council and the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation's foreign ministers' meeting.

At least 4,000 people have been detained in Indian-controlled Kashmir since early August when authorities imposed a communications blackout and restricted freedom of movement in the region.

In an announcement Monday, Disney announced that its new platform will be coming to most of the devices you'd expect. Earlier this year, Disney Plus announced it would be launched in the United States on November 12 , 2019.

"We continue to be very concerned by reports of detentions, and continued restrictions on the residents of the region", the official told reporters on condition of anonymity.

On India's ceasefire violations along the Line of Control (LoC), the FO spokesperson said, "The situation is becoming increasingly risky as ceasefire violations are occurring every day".

The Pakistan army has so far confirmed the killing of four of its soldiers and several civilians in more than two weeks of fighting in Kashmir.

Left-leaning parties and political groups from India and Pakistan have expressed solidarity with the people of Kashmir at a time when the mainstream corporate media and conventional political parties in both countries have failed to give voice to the public mood and apprehensions of people of Kashmir.

Later when the USA president spoke to Khan, Trump asked the Pakistani prime minister to "moderate rhetoric" with India, according to The Hindu newspaper.

Paris: After being snubbed by the UNSC, Islamabad received another setback as France on Tuesday told Pakistan that Kashmir was a "bilateral" issue which should be resolved bilaterally between India and Pakistan.

Speaking to reporters at the White House, Trump said, "I will be with Prime Minister Modi, I'll be with him over the weekend in France".

Pakistan, which has long sought to internationalise the Kashmir dispute, has previously welcomed Trump's offer to broker the matter.
