Pakistan Has No Locus Standi To Comment On Modi’s Visit To J&K: MEA


New Delhi: The Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) said on Thursday that Pakistan has no locus standi to comment on the recent visit of Prime Minister Narendra Modi to Jammu and Kashmir.

The MEA’s response came after Pakistan Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif had termed Modi’s recent visit to Jammu as “staged”.

MEA spokesperson Arindam Bagchi said, “I do not understand the word ‘staged’ that Shehbaz Sharif used. Everyone knows about the changes in J&K. It means they are trying to present a view that the visit did not take place. Pakistan has no locus standi on Jammu and Kashmir. Pakistan commenting on this matter is wrong.”

He also said that Prime Minister Modi received a warm welcome in J&K on April 24 and therefore Pakistan’s statement on the PM’s visit was absolutely inappropriate.
