ISLAMABAD: President Dr. Arif Alvi has said Pakistan solidly stands by Kashmiris in their just struggle for the right to self-determination and will continue to highlight the Jammu and Kashmir dispute at the international fora.
In his message on the Youm-e-Istehsal today (Thursday), the President said the day serves as a reminder to the international community to hold India accountable for its actions and deliver on its promise to the Kashmiris.
President Alvi said a just and peaceful settlement of the Jammu and Kashmir dispute, in accordance with relevant UN Security Council resolutions and the wishes of the Kashmiri people, is indispensable for durable peace and stability in South Asia.
He urged the international community to call upon India to end its campaign of repression and human rights violations in IIOJK and reverse all its illegal actions, including those initiated on and after 5 August 2019.
In his message on Youm-e-Istehsal today (Thursday), PM Khan said since August 5, 2019 India has imposed unprecedented military siege and restrictions on fundamental rights and freedoms of the Kashmiri people but has failed to break the will of Kashmiri people.
India’s illegal and unilateral actions of 5 August 2019 and subsequent measures particularly pertaining to domicile rules and the land ownership laws are aimed at changing the demographic structure of IIOJK and converting the Kashmiris into a minority in their own land.
Prime Minister called upon the international community, including the United Nations, human rights organizations and the global media, to hold India accountable for its crimes against the Kashmiri people.
