Islamabad: Pakistan on Thursday expressed its concerns over continuing violence in Jammu and Kashmir and urged the international community to check the “brutalities” in the Valley.

Pakistan Foreign Office spokesperson Nafees Zakariya urged the international community to check the “blatant human rights violations” in Kashmir.

He noted that countries including the US, China, Turkey and Azerbaijan and human rights organisations have expressed their concerns over the situation in Kashmir.

Over 55 people have died in violent clashes with security forces in Kashmir valley following the killing of Hizb-ul-Mujahideeen commander Burhan Wani on July 8.

Indian officials say that Pakistan is interfering in its internal affairs by trying to internationalise the issue, referring to statements made by Pakistani leaders.
