“The friends of Kashmir and Pakistan Consulate General have been successful in their tireless efforts to make American people aware about the background of the Kashmir dispute,” he said and added that .the reaction shown by Indian consulate on the resolution shows that India is under tremendous international pressure on Kashmir.

He said that it was a great achievement of Pakistan at the diplomatic front and hoped that the country would continue to raise its voice for Kashmiris’ right to self-determination at all international forums.
