Pakistan deplores killing of innocent Kashmiris by Indian forces in occupied Kashmir

India has fervently maintained that the entire state of Jammu and Kashmir, which includes areas now under Pakistan occupation, is an integral part of the Union of India.

India's Ministry of External Affairs said on Pakistan's reported plan that "any unilateral step by Pakistan to alter the status of that part will have no basis in law and will be completely unacceptable".

"The lives, property and freedom of the people is under serious threat due to Pakistan and China's joint conspiracy to strengthen their occupation under the garb of CPEC (China Pakistan Economic Corridor)", Khan further wrote in his letter.

The spokesman said Pakistan wanted resolution of all outstanding issues with India, including the Jammu and Kashmir dispute through a "sustainable and result-oriented dialogue" which does not "disrupt or breakdown on flimsy grounds".

Gilgit-Baltistan is treated as a separate geographical entity by Pakistan.

This comes after Pakistani Inter-Provincial Coordination Minister Riaz Hussain Pirzada told the media that a committee headed by Sartaj Aziz, the de-facto foreign minister of Pakistan, had proposed giving the status of a province to Gilgit-Baltistan.

It is believed that China's concerns about the unsettled status of Gilgit-Baltistan prompted Pakistan to change its status.

Maqsood said Pakistan's claims over Kashmir issue are false they don't have any jurisprudence over Kashmir issue.

The Gilgit-Baltistan area is Pakistan's northernmost administrative territory that borders the disputed Pakistan-occupied Kashmir. "Pakistan has shown a number of gestures which were not reciprocated by India".

He said that thousands of terrorists and more than a dozen terrorist organizations are active within different madrasas, religious and political parties, who enjoy full impunity under institutions of the Pakistan Government.

To declare Gilgit-Baltistan as the fifth province would also require a constitutional amendment, which would need to be ratified by the Pakistani Parliament.

Indian diplomat Nabanita Chakrabarti blasted Pakistan for adopting what she called a "selective approach in tackling terror groups operating outside Pakistan and within".
