In his comments, Ambassador Akram said that the Indian profession of Jammu as well as Kashmir is the “worst manifestation of contemporary colonialism”.

Yet Kashmir today is the most densely inhabited location in the world, with 900,000 Indian soldiers, deployed in the contested region, he said, including that the entire Kashmiri management has been sent to prison, hundreds of Kashmiri young people, consisting of women and also children, detained, demonstrations put down strongly, with neighbourhoods and villages ruined as “cumulative penalty”.
” It (India) has actually secured down the net as well as shut out objective observers from occupied Kashmir,” Ambassador Akram remarked.

‘ UN obliged to go over dispute’

“Kashmir is an internationally recognised disputed territory, and not an integral part of India. Making a wrong case over and over, does not modify the legal truth,” remarked Chaudhry, that is a counsellor at the Pakistan goal to the UN.
The Security Council resolutions, he said, developed self-determination as the controling concept for the settlement of the Kashmir conflict.
