Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi has addressed a letter to both President of the United Nations Security Council and UN Secretary-General António Guterres, informing them of the deteriorating human rights and humanitarian conditions in the Indian-occupied Jammu and Kashmir.
All illegal and unilateral measures imposed by India in IIOJK on August 5, 2019, including attempts to change the demographic structure of the occupied territory, are considered flagrant violations of international law. This includes the United Nations Charter, relevant United Nations Security Council resolutions, as well as the Fourth Geneva Convention.
In addition, the letter from the foreign minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi emphasized Pakistan’s desire for peaceful relations with all of its neighbors, especially with India. According to him, a just settlement of the Kashmir conflict is crucial for the long-term peace and stability of South Asia and the region.
