Kashmir issue included in upcoming UNGA session
Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif is expected to address the 71st session of the UN General Assembly being held at the UN Headquarters in New York City from 13th September onwards.
He was addressing a seminar where he said the resilience of the people of Kashmir against the Indian brutalities has foiled all attempt to suppress them.
Nafees Zakaria said the entire nation and all institutions have one voice for the Kashmir issue while the government has raised the issue at every international front.
He acknowledged that the media has made profound contribution to highlight the human rights violations in Occupied Kashmir.
He said that the media and the civil society have raised their voice against the blatant human right in Occupied Kashmir despite the efforts of India to curtail media access to the restive region.
This has been effective in building pressure on India to stop the atrocities and move towards the resolutions of the dispute through peace means and dialogue.
The spokesman mentioned the letters sent to the UN Secretary General, OIC secretary general, and by the speaker National Assembly to his counterparts in different countries, and the briefing to the envoys of the P-5 countries and the European Union as parts of the efforts to highlight the issue.
