Beijing, August 05 (KMS): Prominent Chinese Scholar, Cheng Xizhong, has said that the international community should take strong and concerted actions to force India to immediately reverse unilateral and all illegal actions it has taken in Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir and fulfill its obligations under the relevant UNSC resolutions.
Cheng Xizhong, Visiting Professor of Southwest University of Political Science and Law, in a statement in Beijing said the Kashmir dispute is the core obstacle to the normalization of relations between India and Pakistan and to peace and stability in the South Asian region.
He said, India changed the status of Kashmir on August 5, 2019, which further complicated the Kashmir issue. Therefore, he said, the key to normalizing India-Pakistan relations was for India to take the initiative to immediately restore the original status of Kashmir, APP reported.
Prof Cheng, who is also a senior fellow of the Charhar Institute, maintained that the international community should take strong and concerted actions, forcing India to immediately halt and reverse unilateral and all illegal actions it has taken in IIOJK and fulfill its obligations under the relevant UNSC resolutions.
He suggested that first of all, the UNSC should pay more close attention to India’s unilateral and illegal actions in IIOJK, which were seriously endangering regional peace. Secondly, he said, because India has seriously violated the fundamental human rights of the Kashmiri people, all international human rights organizations should continue to put pressure on India. “Thirdly, all countries responsible for world peace, especially big powers, should impose the most severe sanctions on India, forcing the Narendra Modi regime to rectify its evil ways with strong measures,” he said.
“The Kashmiris have the full right to decide their own destiny. The Kashmiris should have the final say on the Kashmir issue. I firmly believe that the Kashmiri people who have been fighting for national self-determination for decades will win the final victory,” he added.
