India's foreign minister said on Tuesday that the part of Kashmir controlled by Pakistan belongs to India and that he expects India to gain physical control over it one day, raising the rhetoric over the territorial row.

Axar.az reports citing Reuters that India rules the heavily populated Kashmir Valley while Pakistan controls a wedge of territory in the west that New Delhi describes as Pakistan-occupied Kashmir (PoK).

"Our position on PoK is, has always been and will always be very clear. PoK is part of India and we expect one day that we will have the jurisdiction, physical jurisdiction over it," Foreign Minister Subrahmanyan Jaishankar told a news conference to lay out the government's foreign policy achievements since it came to power in May.
