Islamabad: Pakistan is to “forcefully” present its stance on India’s “state terrorism” in Jammu and Kashmir at the upcoming UN General Assembly in New York, the Foreign Office said on Thursday, a news gathering organisation reported.
“Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif is going to take this issue very forcefully at the UN platform,” Nafees Zakaria, Foreign Office spokesman, said in his weekly press briefing.
Zakaria said Pakistan has always raised the issue of Jammu and Kashmir at the annual UNGA session and mentioned Sharif’s speech at last year’s session “where he strongly highlighted the internationally recognized dispute”.
He said most UN Security Council members had “already been taken onboard on the continued human rights violations” in Kashmir Valley.
