NEW YORK – Due hectic diplomatic efforts from Pakistan the Organization of Islamic Cooperation’s Contact Group on Kashmir held its meeting in New York.

The meeting emphasized that a just settlement of the Kashmir dispute in accordance with relevant UN Security Council resolutions is also a pre-condition for lasting peace in South Asia.

In his speech, the Secretary General Organisation of Islamic Cooperation, Dr Yousef Al Othaimeen reiterating OIC’s principled position on Kashmir, called for an immediate cessation of Indian oppression and atrocities in IHK.

He urged the Indian government to peacefully settle the dispute in accordance with the wishes of the Kashmiri people and the UN Security Council resolutions.

The Secretary General condemned the consistent killing of innocent Kashmiri civilians by the Indian occupation forces and the recent escalation in atrocities at the hands of Indian forces.
