Srinagar: Hurriyat Conference (G) Chairman Syed Ali Geelani stressed international community to take practical steps and help people of J&K in their struggle for right to self-determination.
Reacting to the Indian response & denial against the statement of US representative in the UN, Nikki Haley, wherein she said that the US will play an active role in de-escalating tension and mediate in facilitating talks between India and Pakistan, Syed Ali Geelani said that the response from Indian authorities vindicates that their stance is unsubstantiated and proves their occupation as unjustified and unlawful.
Reacting to the statement of Indian external affairs minister, Syed Ali Geelani said that it is outcome of their autocratic approach & India stands exposed.
In a statement, Syed Ali Geelani said that more than eighteen resolutions were passed in UN and both India and Pakistan are signatories to these resolutions. However, the stubborn & unrealistic attitude of Indian authorities is creating hurdles for implementation of these resolutions, said Geelani.
The UN resolutions ensure lasting solution and peace and America and other interested countries are welcome and they should find way and means & intervene to implement resolution to seek peoples verdict about their aspirations, said Geelani.
It is disheartening that world community failed to ask or make them accountable for their unrealistic and rigid approach, said Geelani.
Commenting over the role played by member countries of UN, Syed Ali Geelani said that till now though they in their initiatives tried to find solution to Kashmir issue, however, Indias denial and its reluctance is proving a big problem.
Syed Ali Geelani said that It is rather improbable that countries offering their mediation never come clear & till now though a few member countries in their daring steps offered their services for its resolutions, however their steps were conditional and it was always left to the discretion of parties to acknowledge these proposals.
