Int'l probe into killings in occupied Kashmir imperative: UN
Pakistan welcomes remarks by UN High Commissioner for Human Rights regarding use of excessive force by Indian authorities in Occupied Kashmir.
UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Zeid Ra'ad Al Hussein has described the international probe into recent killings in Occupied Kashmir as necessary.
According to BBC, he stated this while addressing a session of UN Human Rights Council. He stressed the need to send an independent international mission to review deteriorating situation in Occupied Kashmir.
Zeid Ra'ad Al Hussein said the UN Commission is receiving information from Occupied Kashmir regarding massive use of force by Indian authorities against citizens.
Meanwhile, Pakistan has welcomed the remarks by the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights regarding the use of excessive force by Indian authorities against civilian population in Occupied Kashmir.
Permanent Representative of Pakistan to United Nations in Geneva, Ambassador Tehmina Janjua says Pakistan supports the position of high commissioner that a UN Human Rights Commission's team should visit Occupied Kashmir to independently and impartially investigate the rave violations being perpetrated by Indian occupation forces over the past two months.
She reminded the Human Rights Council that Jammu and Kashmir is an international issue recognized as such by a number of UN SC resolutions.
Ambassador Tehmina Janjua added that claims of restraint shown by India are simply preposterous.
