French Parliament has taken up the escalating conflict of occupied Kashmir for the first time during a conference “Kashmir – the oldest conflict of the World”.
According to details, the issue was highlighted by President of Pakistan-France Friendship Group in the French National Assembly Mr. Jean Bernard Sempastous. The conference was attended by the members of the French parliament, scholars, researchers, human rights activists and French and Pakistani media in large numbers.
Jean Bernard Sempastous said, “The conflict in Kashmir between Pakistan and India was 70 years old and had caused thousands of deaths. There was little knowledge about the Kashmir conflict in France. After a new historical turning point in August, the reflection on this old international conflict deserved France’s full attention.”
He demanded the international community to play role for an early resolution of the Kashmir dispute and urged both Pakistan and India to exercise maximum restraint in this regard.
In occupied Kashmir, normal life continues to remain badly affected in the Kashmir valley and Muslim majority areas of Jammu region due to the snapping of mobile and internet connectivity and shutting of public transport as well as main markets on 53rd consecutive day, today.
According to Kashmir Media Service, due to the prevailing situation, people are facing scarcity of basic essentials in particular life saving drugs. Resultantly, the children and the elderly as well as those suffering from serious ailments are badly hit. Main markets and other business establishments continued to remain closed and public transport is off the road in the occupied territory.
