UNMOGIP Has Symbolic Value, Must Stay: KEA


Oslo: Kashmir is an internationally-acknowledged political issue over which the UN has passed several resolutions, and role of UN only ends when Kashmir issue will be resolved according to the wishes of Kashmiri people as per UN resolution,” President, Kashmir European Alliance (KEA), Sardar Perver Mehmood said today.

Mehmood in a statement from Oslo said that presence of UN Observers on LoC of Kashmir has a symbolic importance, as it represents Kashmir’s  disputed nature. “I believe that UN Observers have done everything in their capacity as monitors to keep UN and it’s concerned wings aware about the volatile situation in Kashmir since it’s inception” He added.

‘Ridiculing’ India’s stance on removal of UN Observers he said “Kashmir conflict is a boiling point between two nuclear rivals, and woes of such war loom large on both countries”. Warning of adverse affects of such nuclear war, Sardar said “World powers and UN should be concerned about possibility of such war, as more than 30% of world population lives directly under the threat of nuclear holocaust.”

“The nuclear conflict may not just stop here, it’s quite possible for it to escalate and turn in to a full fledged nuclear world war, which can bring catastrophic consequences for the whole world” he added concerned.

“Kashmir is a nation of 12 million people with a right to decide their own future, Kashmir is not a border dispute between India and Pakistan. The only acceptable solution to Kashmir is tri-patriate talks which should include Kashmiris. It’s time that UN resolutions should be implemented in Kashmir”
