ISLAMABAD - Prime Minister Imran Khan has said Pakistan will not relent in its moral, political and diplomatic support until the Kashmiris realize their legitimate right to self-determination in accordance with the United Nations security council resolutions.
In his message on Kashmir black day, the Prime Minister said the day marked a tragic day in the history of south Asia. He said this is the day India sent in its armed forces to occupy Jammu & Kashmir against the aspirations and fundamental rights of the Kashmiri people as well as against all principles of international law.
The Prime Minister said for seven decades, India had occupied Jammu and Kashmir in contravention of the UN security council resolutions that ordained the holding of a plebiscite to determine the wishes of the Kashmiri people.
He said the recent UN report on Kashmir was an acknowledgment of Indian policies of occupation that included well documented human rights atrocities. He called for immediate implementation of the recommendation to set up a UN commission of inquiry to investigate human rights abuses by Indian occupation forces.
He said the continued brutal suppression of Kashmiri people and recent surge in killings of young Kashmiris required urgent action. The Prime Minister said the valiant, brave and courageous people of Indian occupied Kashmir deserved the admiration of the world.
