India says expects to gain control over Pakistan Kashmir one day Sep 18, 2019 0 1428 12345 ReutersNEW DELHIIndia’s foreign minister said on Tuesday that the part of Kashmir controlled by Pakistan belongs to India and that he expected New Delhi to gain physical control over it one day, raising the rhetoric over the territorial dispute.India rules the heavily populated Kashmir Valley while Pakistan controls a wedge of territory in the west of the disputed region that New Delhi describes as Pakistan-occupied Kashmir (PoK).“Our position on PoK is, has always been and will always be very clear. PoK is part of India and we expect one day that we will have the jurisdiction, physical jurisdiction over it,” Foreign Minister Subrahmanyam Jaishankar told a news conference.Last month, New Delhi abrogated the special status of its part of Muslim-majority Kashmir in a bid to integrate the territory fully into India, a move that has prompted protests and anger in Kashmir and Pakistan.Asked about the Indian foreign minister’s comments, Mohammad Faisal, spokesman for Pakistan’s foreign ministry, said his government’s position on Kashmir had not changed.
