The Foreign Minister met the United Kingdom’s Minister of State for the Commonwealth & the United Nations, Lord Tariq Ahmad at the margins of the 74th Session of the UN General Assembly, in New York today.
Expressing concern at the deteriorating human rights situation in Indian Occupied Jammu & Kashmir (IOJ&K), the Foreign Minister said that the international outcry and outrage against the Indian atrocities continued to grow stronger with each passing day. Dozens of protests had been held across the world including in the U.K. against Indian atrocities.
He said that the meeting of the United Nations Security Council on the situation in Jammu & Kashmir not only reaffirmed the disputed nature of the territory but also signified that the Council was cognizant of the evolving situation and the potential risks to regional peace and security. He called on members of the UN Security Council to fulfill their primary responsibility for maintenance of international peace and security.
The Foreign Minister welcomed the efforts of the British Parliamentarians as well as Pakistani and Kashmiri diasporas in highlighting the gross violations of human rights in IOJ&K.
Other issues of regional and international importance also came under discussion during the meeting.
