Nawaz Sharif to raise Kashmir issue at UN


Pakistan is ready to raise Kashmir issue in the UN talking about the human rights violations in Jammu and Kashmir.

Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and President of ‘Azad’ Kashmir Masood Khan landed in New York for the United Nations General Assembly’s 71st session.

Sharif will talk about Kashmir and Khan is going to address a meeting, at the UN headquarters on Monday, of the Organization of Islamic Conference (OIC) Contact group on Kashmir.

Sharif is likely to devote a large part of his address to the UN General Assembly for “exposing Indian human rights abuses in occupied Kashmir”, according to media sources.

He will also request UN to imply resolutions for a plebiscite in Kashmir.

President of ‘Azad’ Kashmir, Masood said he will inform OIC Contact Group that “Indian-administered Kashmir is passing through one of its worst crisis in history.”

Pakistan also targeted Indian at the 17th Non-Aligned Movement (NAM) Summit held on Margarita Island in Venezuela for “human rights violation” in the Valley.

Adviser to Pakistan PM on Foreign Affairs, Sartaj Aziz said in NAM summit said that there cannot be any peace in South Asia until the Kashmir issue is resolved.

Highlighting Pakistan’s campaign against terrorism and its “success” in tackling this menace, he mentioned that Pakistan is ready to share its counter-terrorism experience with other NAM countries.

On Sunday, a hotline was set up by Islamabad between the Directors General of Military Operations (DGMOs) of India and Pakistan, following the attack on an army base in Kashmir.

With the terror attack on the soldiers in India at Uri, Pakistan is defending itself from taking responsibility for the same. Though, Pakistan has no way to stay away from the same.
