Pakistan's foreign minister has rejected India's revocation of Kashmir's special constitutional status, saying the move violates a UN resolution.
Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi told a Pakistani TV station Monday from Saudi Arabia, where he is on Haj pilgrimage to the holy city of Makkah, that Pakistan would step up diplomatic efforts to prevent the revocation made by presidential order from coming into effect.
The order scraps an Indian constitutional provision that forbids Indians from outside the region from buying land in the territory.

The president of Pakistan-administrated Kashmir, Sardar Masood Khan, also rejected India's presidential order and said that India "can go to war" with Pakistan in such a situation.
