The Kashmir European Union Week under the auspices of Kashmir Council Europe (KCEU) has begun in Brussels, the European Union headquarters.

The Kashmir EU Week encompasses a photo exhibition, a conference, a press conference and several meetings on the Kashmir issue.

The photo exhibition depicting Indian brutalities in Indian illegally occupied Kashmir Jammu will continue in the European Press Club, Brussels, for the next two weeks. These photos were taken by the Belgian photojournalist, Cédric Gerbehaye, during his visit to IIOJK.

Other programs of the Kashmir EU week such as an international conference on Kashmir in the EU parliament, a press conference in the EU press club and meetings with the members of EU parliament and representatives of organizations of human rights and civil society will be held during the week.

On the opening of the Kashmir EU Week, the KCEU Chairman, Ali Raza Syed said, the week-long programs are being organized for the last several years with the purpose to highlight the Kashmir dispute in Europe.

He said, the people of IIOJK have been facing the worst Indian state terrorism since 1947. He appealed to the international community, particularly the European Union, to put pressure on India to immediately stop its atrocities on the Kashmiris and give them their right to self-determination in accordance with the relevant UN resolutions.—KMS
