Pak disappointed with US decision to designate Hizbul Mujahidee to blacklist 

Vastavam web: Pakistan today said that it was “disappointed” with the US decision to designate the Kashmiri militant outfit Hizbul Mujahideen as a foreign terrorist organisation and termed the move as “completely unjustified.” The US yesterday designated the Hizbul Mujahideen as a foreign terrorist group, nearly two months after declaring its Pakistan-based chief Syed Salahuddin as a global terrorist.He said the US decision did not take into account “the 70-year struggle of Kashmiris.”

“We are disappointed (with the US decision) in view of the fact that Kashmir is an internationally recognized dispute with UNSC resolutions pending implementation,” he said.Formed in 1989, Hizbul Mujahideen is one of the largest and oldest militant groups operating in Kashmir.Hizbul Mujahideen has claimed responsibility for several attacks in Jammu and Kashmir.He also said that Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s “neither bullet nor abuse” comments validates Pakistan’s stance that the “only solution of Kashmir is through fair and free plebiscite.”
