Washington, February 04 (KMS): The President of Azad Jammu and Kashmir (AJK), Barrister Sultan Mahmood Chaudhry, has said that the United States should play its role in resolving the lingering Kashmir dispute that has been a major cause and consequence of rights abuses in the region.
Barrister Sultan Mahmood Chaudhry said this during a meeting with Jason McClellan, the top official of the State Department in Washington on Saturday.
He further said that it was high time that the world particularly, the United States should play its role in granting the people their right to self-determination guaranteed to them by the United Nations. He said that the Indian government’s August 05, 2019 actions had pushed the region deeper into an unending chaos and uncertainty.
It is to mention here that the AJK president would lead a rally from the Indian High Commission in London to the British Prime Minister’s residence, 10 Downing Street on February 05 to express solidarity with the people of Indian Occupied Kashmir.
The rally being organized by the Kashmir Peace Forum International, would be attended by the members of the Kashmiri and Pakistani diaspora community settled in the United Kingdom (UK).
Barrister Sultan has also appealed to Kashmiris living in Europe, America and the world to show solidarity with the people of Occupied Kashmir on the occasion of Solidarity Day.
