G20 meeting in Kashmir: Pakistan is restless due to the G20 meeting going to be held in Kashmir and that is why their leaders are continuously spewing venom against India. Now in this episode, Foreign Minister of the neighboring country Bilawal Bhutto Zardari said on Sunday that India will not succeed in ‘suppressing the voice of the people of Kashmir’ by holding the G20 meeting in Kashmir.
In fact, Srinagar is hosting the third G20 Tourism Working Group meeting from May 22-24. The first meeting took place in Rann of Kutch in Gujarat in February and the second in Siliguri in West Bengal in April.

India assumed the year-long chairmanship of the G20 in December last year and is now all set to host the leaders’ summit in New Delhi in early September. Pakistan has expressed strong resentment over New Delhi’s decision to hold the G20 Tourism Working Group meeting in Kashmir, calling it a “self-serving move”.
Speaking to the media after landing in Pakistan-Occupied Jammu and Kashmir (PoJK) on his three-day visit, Foreign Minister Bilawal said, “India has become a world leader in violation of UN resolutions,” Dawn reported. It is not possible to play an important role.
“At a time when India is holding a conference in Kashmir, I have been invited to address the assembly in PoJK,” he said. Bilawal said he was in Bagh district to express solidarity with the Kashmiri people. Will also attend a protest rally. He said, ‘I believe that when a country takes a step like India, its real face comes in front of the world.’
