India wants to weaken Pakistan economically: Qureshi

London, July 12 (IANS) Pakistan Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi has said that durable peace cannot be achieved in the South Asia region without resolving the Kashmir dispute.

“The situation in Indian occupied Kashmir (IOK) is worsening day by day, while India is hesitant about holding talks with Pakistan and not ready to resolve the Kashmir issue,” Qureshi said on Thursday while addressing a press conference at the Pakistan High Commission here.

Qureshi is in the UK to participate in the Commonwealth Foreign Affairs Ministers meeting 2019. The meeting has been convened to celebrate 70th anniversary of London declaration, which marked the creation of Commonwealth Nations.

The minister said India wanted to weaken Pakistan economically.

He also referred to UN human rights report saying like the first such report on the IOK, the second one too highlighted gross rights violations in the valley.

“Another 507-page report by civil society in India has highlighted the excessive use of force and gross human rights violation in India,” he said.
