Wikileaks shows PoK as part of Pakistan

PTI Washington | Updated on March 12, 2018

Whistleblower website Wikileaks has shown Pak-occupied-Kashmir (PoK) as part of Pakistan in its recently released global map.

There is no mention of the Line of Control as is the common practice to refer to the two sides of LoC as India-controlled Kashmir and Pakistan-controlled Kashmir.

The interactive map was released by Wikileaks yesterday, so as to help people to search into its 1.7 million cables in a user-friendly manner.

The Indian Embassy in Washington did not respond to an email as whether it was aware of Wikileak’s goof up and what steps it has taken to depict factual representation of the international boundary.

Though on its website, Wikileaks has said that the map was created using country boundary lines of 1975.
