When the United Nations Day is being observed across the world, today, Kashmiris are awaiting the implementation of the world body’s resolutions regarding plebiscite.
A report released by Kashmir Media Service said when the UN is marking 77th anniversary of its official founding, India continues to flout Security Council resolutions on Kashmir.
It said, United Nations Day is another reminder that the Kashmir dispute remains unresolved despite being on the UN’s agenda for over 7 decades, adding it is time to express resolute support to the struggling Kashmiris.
The report said, the United Nations resolutions reaffirm Kashmiris’ right for a free and fair referendum and the UN is duty-bound to fulfill its responsibilities regarding Kashmiris’ right to self-determination. Kashmir dispute is the oldest issue in the UNSC, it added. The BJP-led Indian government’s 5th Aug 5 2019 actions violate UN resolutions on J&K, it said,
It maintained that unresolved Kashmir dispute had put a question mark on UN’s credibility as it is the responsibility of the UN to implement its Kashmir resolutions.
The report said, world must support Kashmiris’ struggle for UN-sanctioned right to self-determination, adding settlement of the Kashmir dispute as per UN resolutions is imperative for peace and stability in South Asia.—INP
