Embassy of Pakistan, Bangkok hosted an event today to commemorate the Kashmir Solidarity Day. A large number of the Pakistani diaspora, Kashmiri community, Thai Pakistanis and Thai nationals including women and children participated in the event to express their support and solidarity with the people of the Indian occupied Jammu and Kashmir (IOJ&K) who are waging a brave and just struggle for realizing their inalienable right to self-determination and freedom. Messages from the President and the Prime Minister of Pakistan for Kashmir Solidarity Day were also readout.
In his remarks, Ambassador Asim Iftikhar said that 5 February was being commemorated in Pakistan and globally to express solidarity with the oppressed people of Kashmir who have been waging a struggle for their freedom and self-determination for over 70 years in the face of repression and atrocities at the hands of the Indian occupying forces. The situation in IOJ&K is one of the worst human rights and humanitarian crisis. Pakistan supports the just struggle of the Kashmiri people for the realization of their right to self-determination and has been calling for accountability for the human rights violations in IOJ&K.
The international community supports the legitimate and peaceful political struggle of Kashmiri people for their right to self-determination and has condemned human rights violations in IOJ&K including 185-day long inhumane lockdown. No country in the world recognizes the Indian position that Kashmir is an integral part of India. Discussion on Kashmir issue by various governments and by the Security Council has rejected Indian claims that Kashmir is India’s internal matter. Kashmir is an internationally recognized dispute between India and Pakistan, and it must be resolved peacefully according to the UN resolutions and wishes of the Kashmiri people.
