Pak planning to declare Gilgit-Baltistan as its fifth province
Islamabad [Pakistan], Mar. 15 (ANI): In what may come as a matter of concern for India, Pakistan is planning to declare Gilgit-Baltistan region as its fifth province.
The Gilgit-Baltistan area is Pakistan's northernmost administrative territory that borders the disputed Pakistan-occupied Kashmir.
A committee headed by Adviser to Prime Minister on Foreign Affairs Sartaj Aziz recommended to grant the region a provincial status, reports the GeoNews.
Balochistan, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Punjab, and Sindh are four provinces of Pakistan.
However, India claims the Gilgit-Baltistan area as an integral part of its territory. (ANI)
