Pakistan unveils new map, claims all of Kashmir

Pakistan's Prime Minister Imran Khan on Tuesday unveiled a new map of the country which showed the entire disputed region of Jammu and Kashmir as its territory.

The move came a day ahead of the first anniversary of India's unilateral decision to scrap Kashmir's special status which guaranteed it partial autonomy.

The new map marks the Himalayan region as "Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir", unlike its former status as "disputed territory".

In an address to the nation, Khan said: "Today is a historic day for Pakistan as the Cabinet, opposition and Kashmiri leadership endorsed the new map."

"Kashmir will become part of Pakistan and this map is the first step toward it," Khan added.
