Minister for Law and Justice Barrister Farogh Naseem on Saturday revealed that the government has been pondering over to call an international conference to further raise the issue of Indian occupied Kashmir.
In his talk to the media, Naseem asserted that law and international affairs’ experts, and ambassadors would be invited to attend the conference. “Legal opinions will be sought from the experts for resolution of the dispute,” he said, adding that the actual situation of the disputed Himalayan region would be outlined.
The conference would be held either in Islamabad or Azad Kashmir, he said.
On the other hand, Pakistan’s Permanent Representative to the United Nations Maleeha Lodhi says the UN Security Council has an obligation to resolve the decades-old Kashmir problem by implementing its own resolutions that pledged the right of self-determination to the Kashmiri people to decide their destiny.
Maleeha Lodhi urged the international community that it should respond to the fast deteriorating situation in occupied Kashmir because it poses a danger to peace and security of South Asian region. She said that Pakistan believes it also endangered international peace, and that the 15-member Council should live up to its responsibility.
