TEHRAN (IQNA) – Pakistan's Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi described a resolution developed by the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) at the Council of Foreign Ministers' (CFM) meeting as a "triumph" for his country, Radio Pakistan reported.


Pakistan is one of the founding members of the 57-nation OIC, which has traditionally backed Islamabad on the Kashmir dispute. India, with one of the world’s largest Muslim populations, has also been demanding membership in the OIC.

Qureshi’s statement on Monday came a day after Islamabad announced that the OIC, the world's second-largest inter-governmental outfit after the United Nations, had passed a “unanimous resolution” questioning New Delhi’s decision last year to annul the semi-autonomous status of Jammu and Kashmir, the Nation reported.

Pakistan’s Foreign Office said that the resolution, besides condemning India over their human rights’ record in Jammu and Kashmir, also called upon New Delhi to withdraw the new land ownership laws in Jammu and Kashmir which allows people from other parts of the country to own property in the region.
