“Pakistan has always condemned Indian violation of human rights in Kashmir. Today, Prime Minister Muhammad Nawaz Sharif, during a special meeting of cabinet, has reiterated Pakistan’s resolve to continue political and moral support to right of self determination available to Kashmiri people. He has advised all concerned departments to highlight Kashmir issue on all international forums. Pakistan is successfully apprising global community about Indian forces’ aggression and atrocities in Indian held Kashmir. Kashmir dispute must be resolved under the supervision of UN with consensus. Pakistan has told all major powers, EU and ICO about human rights violations by India in Kashmir. UN secretary general has also urged for the solution of Kashmir dispute according to UN resolutions.”
Maj. Retd. Farooq Malik (Defense Analyst):
“Kashmir is one of the long standing unresolved issues in UN agenda. Pakistan has always supported Kashmir movement for independence. It has always highlighted Indian atrocities and human rights violations in Kashmir on international forums. Pakistan has condemned Indian assault in Kashmir. It is utter failure of UN as an organization that it has not resolved Kashmir issue even after decades. All international forums and human right organizations have not played their part for solution of Kashmir issue.”
