PM to "forcefully" highlight Kashmir issue at UNGA session: FO

ISLAMABAD, (UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News - 18th Augst,2016) : Prime Minister Muhammad Nawaz Sharif will "forcefully" present Pakistan's stance on the state-terrorism in Indian-held Kashmir at the upcoming session of UN General Assembly in New York next month, the Foreign Office said Thursday. "The Prime Minister is going to take this issue very forcefully at the UN platform," Spokesman Nafees Zakaria said in a weekly press briefing, here at Foreign Office. The Spokesman said Pakistan always raised the issue of Jammu and Kashmir at the annual UNGA session and mentioned Nawaz Sharif's speech during last year's session "where he strongly highlighted the internationally recognized dispute".

He said most of the UN Security Council members had already been taken onboard on the continued violation of human rights in Indian-held Kashmir. Whether more dossiers would be presented to the UN about Indian involvement in subversive activities in Pakistan, the Spokesman said investigations were in process following the arrest of Indian spy Kalbhushan Yadav. "At appropriate time, we will further take action in this regard," he said.
