ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi holds contact with UN Secretary General today over Occupied Kashmir.

Pakistan’s Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi link Saturday will speak with United Nations Secretary General (UNSG) António Guterres and discuss India’s human rights violations and the security situation in Occupied Kashmir.

Foreign Minister Qureshi is expected to speak with UNSG Guterres who is in Paris at approximately 5PM today.

Occupied Kashmir has been under curfew and lockdown since August 5 after the Indian government abolished Article 370, which granted special status to the valley. The curfew and lockdown have led to protests in the valley with thousands of Kashmiris including Hurriyat leaders placed under house arrest or detained.

UN-based organisation Genocide watch has issued an alert and urged the United Nations and its members to warn India not to commit genocide in occupied Kashmir.
