Pakistan welcomes statement from UNSC office reaffirming stance on J&K


Pakistan on Saturday welcomed the reiteration of the position of United Nations on the Kashmir dis-pute by the Spokesperson of the United Nations Secretary-General, saying it reaffirmed that UN position on the Jammu and Kashmir dispute.

“The statement reaffirms that UN position on the Jammu and Kashmir dispute is “well-established” and has not changed,” Foreign Office Spokesperson Zahid Hafeez Chaudhry said in re-sponse to the statement by the UN Secretary-General’s Spokesperson.

He said Pakistan appreciated the timeliness of the statement as it coincided with the completion of two years of India’s illegal and unilateral actions of 5 August 2019 in the Indian Illegally Occupied Jammu and Kashmir (IIOJK), that were in violation of the UN charter, UNSC resolutions and interna-tional law including the Fourth Geneva Convention.—KMS
