The ambassador noted that Azerbaijanis have information about what happened in the occupied Jammu and Kashmir and approach sensitive to this issue: “Azerbaijani government and people have courageously supported Pakistan’s position on Jammu and Kashmir issue and stated in all the international platforms that it stands by Pakistan. Azerbaijan is also an active member of the Committee in the Organization of Islamic Cooperation regarding the Kashmir conflict. We express our deep gratitude to Azerbaijan for this support.”
Pakistani diplomat noted that Kashmiris have been living in closed condition about 70 years: “Even their most fundamental rights have been restricted. Thousands of Kashmiris have been killed, arrested, have been subjected to pressure, and it is one of the greatest tragedies of our time.”

Hayee noted that Pakistan and Azerbaijani people understand each other, and the drama that two people faced, and what is occupation well: “Because Azerbaijani lands have been under occupation for many years. The negotiations have continued for many years, finally, Azerbaijanis have sacrificed their lives and liberated their territories. We hope that Kashmiris will also live the happiness of the end of the occupation soon”.
