Pakistan to continue moral, political, diplomatic support to Kashmiris: PM
ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Imran Khan on Thursday said Pakistan would continue to extend its moral, political and diplomatic support to the people of Kashmir in their struggle for right to self-determination.
He expressed these views during a meeting with Azad Jammu and Kashmir (AJK) President Sardar Masood Khan, who called on him in Islamabad.
The prime minister called upon international community to take immediate notice of the human rights violations in the Indian occupied Jammu and Kashmir and play its effective role in resolving the Kashmir issue in line with aspirations of Kashmiri people and the United Nations resolutions.
The resolution of long standing disputes including Jammu & Kashmir and Palestine was imperative for international peace and security, Pakistan’s Ambassador to UN Maleeha Lodhi said earlier, while speaking at the high level forum convened in the General Assembly on a Culture of Peace.
“We must summon the collective will to address protracted and complex disputes and not ignore them simply because they appear intractable,” she said.
“Foreign occupation and the denial of fundamental rights including the right to self-determination exacerbate the sense of injustice among the occupied and the oppressed people”, the ambassador said asserting that “Peace and justice are inextricably linked.”
