LAHORE: The Special Cabinet meeting on Friday has decided to observe nationwide black day on July 19 to mark complete solidarity with Kashmiris.

Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif said Pakistan will continue to extend moral, political and diplomatic support to Kashmiris in their just struggle for right to self-determination.

Addressing the Special Cabinet meeting held in Governor House in Lahore on Friday, he termed the movement of Kashmiris as a movement of freedom.

“Indian brutalities will give impetus to the freedom struggle,” Prime Minister said.
