Legal advisor at ICJ questioned how Pakistan would overcome its 'jurisdiction-related issue' on Kashmir
Pakistan's foreign minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi claimed that Pakistan will approach the International Court of Justice (ICJ) on the Kashmir case. Shortly after the statement, Reema Omer, a legal advisor at the ICJ has questioned how Pakistan would overcome the 'jurisdiction-related issue' on Kashmir. Reema Omer tweeted, "Shah Mehmood Qureshi clarified on ASKKS that the Govt. is considering approaching the ICJ against India regarding #Kashmir using the ground of “genocide”. Jurisdictional hurdles aside, this will be quite a challenge given how genocide is defined under international law". She said it would be difficult for Pakistan to challenge India on Kashmir issue on the basis of Genocide as ICJ has different lines to define 'Genocide'. Earlier United Nations Security Council rejected the claims made by Pakistan.
Do you stand with @ReemaOmer
