Pakistan stated at the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) that Kashmir is not a part of India, it never was and it never will be. Exercising Pakistan’s right of reply to the statement by the representative of India at the session, Pakistan’s representative said India has no claim to Jammu and Kashmir than that of a military occupier. Earlier, India slammed Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan’s verbal attack on India at the UN General Assembly as a “new low” for the world body on its 75th anniversary, and questioned his claim to be a champion of Muslims when he is unable to protect them in his own country.
The representative reiterated that the state of Jammu and Kashmir is a disputed territory. He maintained that as per the Security Council, the final disposition of the disputed territory will be made according to the will of the people of Indian Illegally Occupied Jammu and Kashmir (IIOJ&K). He added that the democratic method through which the people of IIOJ&K will obtain their freedom will be conducted by the United Nations and further stated that the people of the region have the right to resist Indian occupation. “Kashmir will be free one day. This is not only a lesson of history, it is also an imperative of justice.”
The diplomat reaffirmed Pakistan’s support for the struggle of Kashmiris. “The people of Pakistan, people of the Islamic world, indeed, all freedom-loving people, are with the Kashmiris.”
India’s tirade was another failed attempt to divert attention from the atrocities committed by the armed forces in the disputed region, the representative added.
