Islamabad, January 05, 2021 (PPI-OT): President Dr. Arif Alvi and Prime Minister Imran Khan in their separate messages on the Kashmiris’ Right to Self-Determination Day, have urged the United Nations to honour its commitment of providing the right of self-determination to the people of Kashmir.

They said being a direct party to the Jammu and Kashmir dispute, Pakistan will continue its strong and steadfast support for Kashmiri people till realization of their inalienable right to self-determination in accordance with UN Security Council resolutions. The President in his message said the global community cannot shy away from their responsibility in guaranteeing a free and fair plebiscite in Jammu and Kashmir.

Prime Minister Imran Khan said for over seven decades, the life of Kashmiris in Indian Illegally Occupied Jammu and Kashmir has been a chronicle of state-sponsored cruelty and terrorism. He said owing to Indian intransigence, the UN Security Council has failed to fulfill its pledge to the Kashmiri people. Imran Khan said India has unleashed a new reign of terror in the illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir since August 2019.
