Here are five highlights of the resolution that was passed by the British parliament over Gilgit-Baltistan in Pakistan.
 
 
  1. That this House condemns the arbitrary announcement by Pakistan declaring Gilgit-Baltistan as its Fifth Frontier, implying its attempt to annex the already disputed area.
     
  2. Notes that Gilgit-Baltistan is a legal and constitutional part of the state of Jammu and Kashmir, India.
     
  3. It is illegally occupied by Pakistan since 1947, and where people are denied their fundamental rights including the right of freedom of expression.
     
  4. Notes the attempts to change the demography of the region in violation of State Subject Ordinance.
     
  5. Forcibly and illegally building the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor, which further aggravates and interferes with the disputed territory.
