Pakistan shames India in the United Nations

*NEW YORK - Pakistan shames India in the United Nations over occupied Kashmir and running away from dialogues. *

*Pakistan said at the United Nations that it seeks a negotiated settlement of all issues including the Kashmir dispute, but India refuses to even engage in any dialogue.*

Speaking in the General Assembly in the debate on the report of the Secretary General on the work of the organisation, Pakistan’s Ambassador to the UN, Maleeha Lodhi urged the international community to take concrete and meaningful action to alleviate the suffering of the Kashmiri people.

The UN, she asserted, has longstanding obligations on Jammu and Kashmir as it remains among the oldest issues on the agenda of the Security Council.

Welcoming the establishment of the Secretary General’s High-Level Advisory Board on Mediation, Ms Lodhi reminded that the Kashmir dispute was one of the earliest applications of Chapter VI of the UN which deals with pacific settlements of disputes.

Lodhi also referred to the June 14 report of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, which she said documented in detail the systematic violations of fundamental rights of the Kashmiri people.
