Reaffirming India’s stance that Pakistan-occupied Kashmir (PoK) is an integral part of the country, External Affairs Minister Dr. S Jaishankar said on Thursday that this position is not solely that of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) but represents the viewpoint of the entire nation.

He was addressing a press conference in Thiruvananthapuram.

“The Parliament of India has taken a united stand and every political party in the country has supported that stand. We will never accept that the Pok is not a part of India. It’s a united stand, it remains our stand,” Jaishankar said.

Jaishankar said that India’s primary concern regarding Pakistan is terrorism. He cautioned that any acts of aggression from Pakistan will be met with a firm response.

“The central issue where Pakistan is concerned is terrorism, and on the terrorism issue, we as a party and the government have been very clear that we will not ignore terrorism and won’t look away when terrorism happens. If something happens, we will deal with it, we will reply and that has been our record,” he added.
