India urged to take steps to resolve Kashmir dispute


In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, Jammu and Kashmir Employees Movement has welcomed the announcement of a ceasefire on the Line of Control by India and Pakistan.

The spokesman for Employees Movement in a statement issued in Srinagar said that India has the responsibility to further make the environment conducive to give Kashmiris their inalienable right to self-determination.

He said that the people of occupied Jammu and Kashmir have been giving unprecedented sacrifices for more than seven decades to achieve their birthright, and ceasefire along the LOC was an important development but without addressing the real and fundamental Kashmir issue, things could not move forward.

He said that India was constantly trying to mislead the international community about the ground situation in occupied Jammu and Kashmir.

The spokesman said that unless the Kashmir issue was resolved by the UN resolutions, peace and stability could not be established in the region and Pak-India relations could not be improved on a sustainable basis.—KMS
