Pakistan’s Foreign Minister Bilawal Bhutto called on the international community and particularly the United Nations to live up to their commitments and take up the necessary measures stated in United Nation Security Council resolutions.
He believes that an immediate halt of human right violations and the undoing of India’s measures in attempt to alter the demographic profile of Indian-Occupied Jammu and Kashmir (IIOJK) should go hand in hand with enabling the people of IIOJK to exercise their right to self-determination.
This right, Bhutto reminded the world, is a cornerstone of international law, reiterated annually in United Nations General Assembly self-determination resolutions. Bhutto also congratulated the diplomatic success that achieved one of its major goals last October in Germany when, for the first time, a foreign minister from Europe called for the involvement of the United Nations to resolve the Kashmir dispute.
The past 75 years of India’s occupation of IIOJK has been witness to tremendous hardship, repression and denial of self-determination of the Kashmiri people. India has imposed a reign of terror on the region and infringed upon the inalienable right to self-determination of the people. Pakistan’s permanent representative to the United Nations, Ambassador Munir Akram, has declared that it will never cease its support for the Kashmiri people in the pursuit of their right of self-determination until it is ensured through UN Security Council resolutions.
India’s illegal action of 5 August 2019 to make amendments to IIOJK has been met with attempts to engineer political and demographic changes in the region to strip away the Kashmiris’ power.
Pakistan has and will continue to stand firmly in its moral, political, and diplomatic backing to ensure the realization of this inalienable right until it comes to fruition.
