Pakistan says primary aim of its mission at UN is to secure right to self-determination for Kashmiris

United Nations, October 25 (KMS): Pakistan says that the primary aim of its mission at the United Nations is to secure the recognized right of self-determination for the people of the internationally-recognized disputed territory of Jammu and Kashmir.

Pakistan’s Permanent Representative to the United Nations, Munir Akram, in a message on the UN Day highlighted his country’s active role in various forums of the world body.

He said Pakistan had welcomed the UN Secretary General’s statement wherein he stated that the Kashmir dispute should be resolved on the basis of the UN Charter and the Security Council resolutions.

He said the UN Charter and resolutions prescribe that the final disposition of the state of Jammu and Kashmir will be determined by the Kashmiri people by exercising their right to self-determination in a free and fair plebiscite under the UN supervision.

The Pakistani envoy said Pakistan will continue to call for the implementation of the UN resolutions to settle the Kashmir dispute.

Munir Akram said Pakistan is one of the major contributors of troops to UN peacekeeping – contributing 200,000 troops in 47 missions – with an outstanding record of performance.
