Pakistan seeks UN support to decolonize Kashmir

Deconlonisation agenda incomplete without resolving Kashmir

Srinagar, Oct 11: Saying decolonization agenda of the United Nations would remain incomplete without resolving Kashmir dispute, Pakistan today raised the issue at the world body asking it to support the “right to self-determination” of Kashmiri people. 

While speaking at a special committee of the General Assembly Pakistan's deputy permanent representative to the UN Amjad Hussain B Sial asked the international community to support the Kashmiri people's right to self-determination. The committee addresses the issue of decolonization.

"The decolonisation agenda of the United Nations would be incomplete without resolution of the Jammu and Kashmir issue," he said.

"Negation of the right to self-determination breeds discontent, ignites conflicts and threatens peace and security. Unfortunately, South Asia and Middle East have witnessed it directly," Sial said
