Pakistan asks UNGA president to play role for resolving Kashmir issue
NEW YORK (92 News) – Pakistan’s permanent representative to UN Munir Akram has asked United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) President Tijjani Muhammad-Bande to play role for resolving Kashmir issue.
He urged the UNGA president during his meeting. He has impressed upon the UNGA president that international community must play its role to resolve the Kashmir issue as it can become a flash point between two nuclear-armed states.
During his meeting, the Pakistani envoy said that situation in Indian Occupied Kashmir (IoK), which has been under a repressive military lockdown for over four months is now further worsening.
The ambassador apprised him that despite the lapse of one hundred days of India’s inhuman curfew and blanket restrictions on all forms of communications as well as systematic intimidation, normalcy has still not returned and fear grips the disputed state.
Munir Akram also discussed in the meeting regarding Sustainable Development Goals with focus on the goal of zero hunger aimed at ending hunger, achieving food security, improving nutrition and promoting sustainable agriculture as well as measures to curb illicit financial flows.
Uncertainty still prevail in Indian Occupied Kashmir (IoK) as curfew and inhuman military lockdown continued on 103rd consecutive day, today.
According to the KMS, uneasy calm and uncertainty still prevail in the Kashmir Valley and Muslim majority areas of Jammu and Ladakh regions as the residents continue to simmer with anger over stripping of special status of the territory and the subsequent inhuman and brutal actions by BJP-led Indian government.
Restrictions under Section 144 remain imposed in the territory amid massive presence of Indian forces during curfew. Although some communications means, such as landline phones and postpaid mobile services, have partially been restored, the ban on internet, text messaging and prepaid mobile connections still continues.
People in the Valley continue to observe civil disobedience against New Delhi’s anti-Kashmir moves by not attending educational institutions and offices as well as keeping their shops closed for most part of the day.
