Member states of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) will form an advocacy group for Indian-administered Jammu and Kashmir, according to a statement released Friday by Pakistan-administered Kashmir.

A 16-member ASEAN parliamentary delegation said during a visit to Muzaffarabad, the capital of Azad Jammu and Kashmir, that the multi-national body would “seek justice for the Kashmiri people.”

“We would contact parliaments of the regional countries, and are also trying to use the mosques network to launch a big Kashmiri campaign,” said Haji Mohammad Azmi Abdul Hamid, who is head of Malaysian Consultative Council for Islamic Organization.
