While underscoring Pakistan’s commitment to seeking a peaceful resolution of the dispute in keeping with the aspirations of the people of Jammu & Kashmir and UNSC resolutions, he maintained that the resolution of this issue is the sole guarantor of lasting peace and stability in South Asia.

On the occasion, the Ambassador also brought to attention the recent spike in violence by the Indian Armed Forces in IIOJK and brutal human rights violations being carried out with absolute impunity. He further highlighted the systemic socioeconomic injustice against the valley’s Muslims and termed the ongoing Indian state sanctioned policy of ethnic cleansing as genocide in its worst manifestation.

On the occasion, documentaries depicting the woeful state of human rights in Kashmir, both in Urdu and Russian were also played.
