India cannot deny legitimacy of UN resolutions: Gilani

ISLAMABAD, Jan 5 (UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News - 05th Jan, 2017 ) : Chairman of All Parties Hurriyet Conference, Syed Ali Gilani, has said that New Delhi cannot deny the legitimacy and authenticity of the UN resolutions as these stand witness that political destiny of Jammu and Kashmir is yet to be decided.

According to Kashmir Media Service, Syed Ali Gilani in a statement issued in Srinagar said that the UN resolutions formed basics of and guarantee the peaceful and amicable settlement of the Kashmir dispute as per the aspirations of the Kashmiri people.

The APHC Chairman commenting on the resolution passed by the UN on January 5, 1949, said that the resolution was a clear binding on both India and Pakistan to fulfill their commitment of resolving the Kashmir dispute according to the aspirations of the Kashmiri people through a peaceful referendum.

"Even after seven decades these resolutions are viable and provide a peaceful and durable solution to this vexed and long standing issue." Syed Ali Gilani expressed his dismay over the role of the World Body and said that it was painful that this institution had so far failed to implement its resolutions on Kashmir.

He said that although the UN had done a commendable job in the fields of poverty, malnutrition and social issues, but it was unfortunate that it couldn't contain the arrogant forces like India which was trampling all ethics in Jammu and Kashmir.

"Suppressed people are losing their faith in this institution and they are forced to adopt other means of resistance which may have drastic repercussions," he added.
