Islamabad, February 04, 2018 (PPI-OT):Government and the people of Pakistan would continue their steadfast political, moral and diplomatic support to the people of Indian occupied JammuandKashmir in their heroic struggle for their inalienable right to self-determination on the Occasion of Kashmir Solidarity Day being observed on Monday (Feb 5, 2018).
In his Kashmir Solidarity Day message, Minister for Kashmir Affairs and Gilgit-Baltistan Chaudhry Muhammad Barjees Tahir said that the people of JammuandKashmir were promised right to self-determination seven decades ago by the international community, however, India has continued to deny them their inalienable right by refusing to implement UN Security Council resolutions on Kashmir.
In-spite of barbaric Indian atrocities and apathy on behalf of a large part of the international community, the brave people of Indian occupied JammuandKashmir have demonstrated exemplary resilience and grit in the face of perverse Indian aggression. India has failed miserably to absolve itself of its reprehensible human rights record in occupied JammuandKashmir by labelling it as terrorism. JammuandKashmir is the core dispute between India and Pakistan. Peace in the region will not be achieved until the resolution of this dispute in accordance with the aspirations of the people of JammuandKashmir.
Pakistan reminds the international community, particularly India of its obligations and urges it to fulfill the promise made to the people of JammuandKashmir by implementing the UN Security Council resolutions. On the occasion of Kashmir Solidarity Day, we reiterate our firm and continued moral, diplomatic and political support to the people of IoK in their sacred struggle. Only implementation of United Nations Security Council resolutions can amicably resolve the JammuandKashmir dispute.
