Qureshi told the dignitary that life remains paralyzed in occupied Kashmir due to continuation of curfew there over the last month.
The FM said Indian unilateral actions in occupied Kashmir have endangered the regional peace and security.
He said millions of innocent and armless Kashmiri people are looking towards the international community especially the Muslim world to get the Indian atrocities stopped.
Normal life remains crippled in the occupied Kashmir with humanitarian crisis aggravating with each passing day as the strict curfew and communication blackout imposed by the Indian authorities entered 33rd day today.
