    “The 'forced and illegal construction' of the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) has interfered with the disputed territory, the resolution said.

    The motion was tabled in the British Parliament on March 23 by Bob Blackman of the Conservative Party. It accused Pakistan of attempting to annex an area that did not belong to it.

    This has huge legal significance and geo-political ramifications. Especially the last part
    British Parliament's clears up this :

    1. The area PoK and Gilgit Baltistan are disputed. (Not the Indian Territory)
    2. The above disputed area does not belong to Pakistan.

    LONDON: A motion was passed in the British Parliament condemning Islamabad's announcement+ declaring Gilgit-Baltistan as its fifth frontier+ , saying the region is a legal and constitutional part of Jammu & Kashmir illegally occupied by Pakistan since 1947.

    The motion which was tabled on March 23 and sponsored by Conservative Party leader Bob Blackman, stated that Pakistan, by making such an announcement, is implying its attempt to annex the already disputed area.

    "Gilgit-Baltistan is a legal and constitutional part of the state of Jammu & Kashmir, India, which is illegally occupied by Pakistan since 1947, and where people are denied their fundamental rights including the right of freedom of expression," the motion read.
