Pakistan has once again taken up the Kashmir agenda, despite several setbacks on the international platform. A press release has been issued by the Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif’s office yesterday, stating that Kashmir is still an unfinished agenda for the United Nations, and it is the PM’s duty to take up the issue as the voice of Kashmiris has been oppressed by India.
Nawaz Sharif, during the introductory meeting for the upcoming United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) meeting, said, “It is an obligation for me as prime minister of Pakistan to become the voice of Kashmiris who have been oppressed in Kashmir. I will leave no stone unturned to make the world understand the plight and struggle of the people of Kashmir,” Sharif said.
“The right of self-determination is the basic right of Kashmiris and we will make every effort to make them captain of their own ship,” Sharif added.
The meeting observed that Kashmir remains an unfinished agenda for the United Nations, and accordingly India must realise that Kashmir is not its internal matter, rather it is a matter of regional and international concern.
The meeting reviewed the agenda to be included in the next session of United Nations general assembly in which Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif is expected to participate.
