Pak hits back at India, vows to resolve J-K dispute in accordance with UNSC resolutions

Updated: Sep 19, 2016 18:24 IST

Karachi [Pakistan], Sept. 19 (ANI): In the wake of the Uri terror attack in which 18 Indian soldiers lost their lives, Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif has highlighted Islamabad's commitment to peacefully resolve the Jammu and Kashmir dispute in accordance with the resolutions of the UN Security Council.

The Prime Minister has called upon the permanent members of the Security Council to fulfill their responsibility with regard to the Jammu and Kashmir dispute, which is one of the oldest internationally recognized unresolved disputes on the agenda of the UN Security Council.

"Despite the passage of more than 68 years since the adoption of multiple resolutions, the people of Jammu and Kashmir still await the implementation of these resolutions which promised them the right to self-determination to be exercised through the holding of a free and impartial plebiscite under the UN auspices," said a Ministry of Foreign Affairs release.

The Prime Minister has stated that the non resolution of the Jammu and Kashmir dispute is a constant source of tension and instability in the region and a threat to international peace and security.

The MoFA statement also said that Prime Minister Sharif has written to P5 countries' leaders and urged them to call upon the Indian Government to immediately stop "bloodshed" in Kashmir and implement the relevant UNSC resolutions.

The Prime Minister has written letters to the heads of government/state of the permanent members of the UN Security Council (China, France, Russian Federation, UK and the USA)

This comes after New Delhi gave the green signal to diplomatically isolate Pakistan at every international grouping.

According to sources, India is to present all actionable evidence against Pakistan if required at international bodies.

The Indian Permanent Mission is to issue a statement taking on Islamabad soon after Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif will make his speech at the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA).

Evidence of Pakistan's hand in Uri attack i.e. GPS tracker movements that go back to starting point in Pakistan, Pashto literature, Pakistan Army marked arms will be given to Islamabad at the DGMO level, sources add.

India is set to raise Uri attack at the 71st UNGA and highlight Pakistan's involvement into the deadly terror strike. (ANI)
