India on Wednesday objected to a letter from the Organisation of Islamic Conference that referred to Jammu and Kashmir as an “occupied” State. It said it rejected any such reference to the State.
“We have seen reports that the OIC has again chosen to refer to Jammu and Kashmir incorrectly, in an invitation to an Indian invitee to an OIC meeting. This is most regrettable,” External Affairs Ministry spokesman Vishnu Prakash said. “Jammu and Kashmir is an integral part of India. We totally reject any reference or description to the contrary,” he said.
