Kashmir issue included in next UNGA session: Pak FO

ISLAMABAD: Foreign Office Spokesperson Nafees Zakaria says the resilience of the Kashmiris against the Indian brutalities has foiled all the Indian plans to suppress their just cause.

He was addressing a seminar titled "Kashmir Dispute: New Challenges and Way Forward" in Islamabad on Saturday.

Nafees Zakaria said the entire Pakistani nation and all institutions have one voice for the Kashmir issue and the media has made profound contribution in highlighting the human rights violations in Occupied Kashmir.

He said Pakistan has raised the issue at every front and it is included in the agenda of upcoming session of UN General Assembly.

The spokesman mentioned the letters sent to the UN Secretary General, the OIC secretary general and by the speaker National Assembly to his counterparts in different countries, and the briefing to the envoys of the P-5 countries and the European Union as parts of the efforts to highlight the issue.

He said despite Indian efforts to curtail media access to the blatant human rights violations in Occupied Kashmir, the media and the civil society have effectively raised their voices building pressure on India to stop the atrocities and move towards resolutions of the dispute through dialogue.
