Govt raises Kashmir dispute at all appropriate global forums: Kaira


India trying to divert attention from the United Nations resolutions

Adviser to the Prime Minister for Kashmir Affairs and Gilgit-Baltistan Qamar Zaman Kaira said that the current government had raised the Kashmir dispute in every forum in a vigorous manner. He said this while addressing “Judicial Consultative Conference on Kashmir issue – The current situation in IIOJK – Legal options and way forward” organized by the Ministry of Kashmir Affairs and Gilgit Baltistan at Kashmir Council Secretariat on Thursday. Qamar Zaman Kaira said that conflict might delay the solution of Kashmir but could not keep the Kashmiris subdued for long time.

He said that the purpose of the Judicial Consultative Conference on the Kashmir dispute was to obtain legal guidance on the case of Kashmiris as the division of Kashmir remained an incomplete agenda of the subcontinent. He said Pakistan was determined to resolve the Kashmir dispute but India continued to refuse to implement the resolutions of the United Nations. He said India was trying to divert attention from the United Nations resolutions and the UN Convention.

The recent amendments were another attempt to change the proportion of the population there to non-state residents, he added. He said the right to vote was being given to Indian nationals and India was taking the lead from Israel’s experience in Palestine. He said that the Hurriyat activists in Kashmir had kept this issue alive with their sacrifices.
