What did PM Imran Khan tell UN Chief?
ISLAMABAD - Prime Minister Imran Khan has asked the UN Secretary General to urgently dispatch a Commission of Inquiry to investigate the grave situation in Indian occupied Kashmir in line with recommendations of the June 2018 report of UN Human Rights Commissioner on human rights in Kashmir.
He made this demand during a telephonic conversation with Secretary General of United Nations António Guterres.
The Prime Minister called upon the United Nations to take stock of grave human rights violations in Occupied Kashmir.
He expressed deep concern over the gross human rights violations by the Indian security forces in the held territory.
He highlighted especially the recent killing of 15 innocent Kashmiris and injuries to more than 300 protesters.
The Prime Minister termed the situation in Occupied Kashmir as unacceptable.
He reiterated the proposal to appoint a Special UN Representative for resolution of the Jammu and Kashmir dispute.
He said Jammu and Kashmir dispute is not a bilateral issue between Pakistan and India, but an internationally recognized dispute and an outstanding agenda item in the UN Security Council.
Imran Khan said imposition of Presidential Rule in Occupied Kashmir has the danger of further aggravating the already serious situation.
The Prime Minister urged the Secretary General to weigh in and to stop India from perpetrating state repression, violence and brute force against Kashmiri youth, women and children.
