In a major development, Prime Minister Imran Khan on Tuesday unveiled a new political map of the country that truly represents aspirations of the people of the country. Pakistan’s new map shows the entire Kashmir region as part of the country.
In a televised address, he said the new map supports the principled stance of the people of Pakistan as well as the Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir about the Kashmir issue. The premier said the new map also negated India’s occupational illegal action of August 5 last year.
PM Imran said the map, which was also endorsed by the federal cabinet, was fully backed by the entire political leadership of the country. Moreover, he also said the new official map would henceforth be used in the curriculum.
Meanwhile, PM reiterated the implementation of the UN Security Council resolutions was the only solution to the Kashmir dispute.
He said Pakistan would continue its political and diplomatic efforts for resolution of the longstanding dispute. He hoped that we would achieve this goal one day.
On this occasion, Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi also said the new ‘official map’ would be the one used in schools and colleges. He said this was the first time that a map reflected the aspirations of the people.

Pakistan to observe Youm-e-Istehsal tomorrow
On August 5, 2019, India revoked the constitutional autonomy of Jammu and Kashmir. It divided IOK into two federal territories in a bid to integrate it fully with India.
The Pakistani nation will also observe Youm-e-Istehsal tomorrow to express solidarity with the oppressed Kashmiri people.
Nation happy with Pakistan ‘new map’
The PTI government unveiled Pakistan’s new map a day ahead of the first anniversary of India’s controversial unilateral decision to revoke the area’s semi-autonomy. Pakistanis are expressing their joy over the news on social media.
