NEW DELHI: Upping the ante ahead of a likely high-decibel showdown with Pakistan at the United Nations next week, foreign minister S Jaishankar said India’s position on Pakistan-occupied Kashmir was clear and it expects to have “physical jurisdiction” over the territory one day. PoK is, has always been and will always be very clear. PoK is part of India and we expect one day to have physical jurisdiction over it,” Jaishankar said. Earlier, Union home minister Amit Shah reiterated the position while speaking in Lok Sabha. Jaishankar framing India’s counter to Pakistan offensiveEarlier, Union home minister Amit Shah reiterated the position that “PoK is part of India” while speaking in Lok Sabha on the decision to abrogate the special status of J&K under Article 370. He was followed by defence minister Rajnath Singh and Vice-President Venkaiah Naidu speaking in the same vein apart from more junior figures like MoS in PMO Jitendra Singh. The foreign minister seemed to be framing India’s pushback against the expected Pakistani offensive with PM Narendra ModiJaishankar yet again ruled out dialogue with Pakistan until, he said, it became a “normal” nation. He also said there was no need to worry too much about what people were saying on Kashmir as India’s position had been consistent since 1972 and it would again prevail. “Article 370 is not a bilateral issue. The issue here is terror. Show me one neighbour which conducts terror as a part of its foreign policy against a neighbour. Our position is normal, rational. The abnormality is there. They are talking but actually doing nothing to check terror,” he said. “There is a growing understanding (about Pak) and there is not a single country that would say cross-border terror is not happening,’’ he said. In Islamabad, a Pakistani spokesman termed Jaishankar’s statement on PoK “inflammatory and irresponsible”, and said it was an attempt by India to divert global attention from the situation in Kashmir. Such remarks could further escalate tensions and jeopardise peace and security in the region, he claimed. In Video:PoK is part of India and we will have physical jurisdiction over it: EAM S Jaishankar
