India rejects OIC's 'unwarranted references' on Jammu & Kashmir
Saturday, 4 March 2023 India has assailed the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) for its "unwarranted references" to the Union Territory of Jammu and Kashmir and for allowing Pakistan to hijack and misuse its platform for carrying out Islamabad's "nefarious agenda" against New Delhi.
China has opposed the holding of a G20 meeting in Kashmir. On the other hand, Turkey and Saudi Arabia have not registered for the event to be held in Srinagar as well. On Friday, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Wang Wenbin said that China firmly opposes holding G20 meetings in any form in 'disputed' areas and will not attend such meetings. India countered the objection by saying it is free to hold meetings on its own territory.

Former Pakistan prime minister Imran Khan is to be released on bail for two weeks following a decision from the Islamabad High Court. The bail means that he can’t be re-arrested on those charges for at least next two weeks. Imran Khan was back in the court following his arrest on Tuesday on corruption charges, which had sparked countrywide violence that had left at least 10 people dead and dozens injured. He remained in the court after the decision as his lawyers petitioned judges for similar protection in a number of other corruption charges, trying to close off legal avenues for the government to arrest him again. Pakistan’s Supreme Court had ruled yesterday that the arrest was unlawful and had ordered his immediate release from the custody. It had then asked the Islamabad High Court to reconsider its initial decision to uphold the arrest.
