Pakistan again raises Kashmir at international forum

September 30, 2010

Many in Bharat believe that the Kashmir issue cannot and should be be raised at an international forum and that it is a bilateral issue. Some obsolete and debunked agreements are brought up to further this claim. Pakistan has never adhered to this theory and has brought the Kashmir issue in various international forums like the OIC and the UN.

Foreign Minister Mahmood Qureshi once again brought up the issue at the UN General Assembly meeting in New York. Bharat expected this and will respond with the usual rhetoric about so called terror and so on and so forth.

New York: Speaking at the United Nations General Assembly, Pakistan’s Foreign Minister, Shah Mahmood Qureshi raised the issue of Kashmir again on Tuesday.

“The Jammu and Kashmir dispute is about the exercise of the right to self-determination by the Kashmiri people through a free, fair and impartial plebiscite under the UN auspices. Pakistan views the prevailing situation in the Indian Occupied Kashmir with grave concern,” he said.

Late on Monday night, Qureshi had also said that any talks between the two countries needs to be “meaningful.”

Pakistan’s Foreign Minisiter had also noted that a bilateral was still worked out, and Islamabad had sent “some suggestions” through diplomatic channels to New Delhi about these talks.

Without going to specific details about these “suggestions,” Qureshi said that he was now awaiting a response from the Indian side.

“The talks can take place immediately if a positive response is received,” the minister said, noting that any meeting should produce results
