Pak concerned over Indian move to violate UN Kashmir resolutions

ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Tuesday expressed serious concern to the United Nations Secretary General and its president on Indian violations of UNSC’s resolutions on Kashmir and its efforts to introduce a controversial “Geo-spatial Information Regulation Bill” in the Indian Parliament. Pakistan’s concern has been conveyed to the Secretary General and President of the UN Security Council, through letters by its Permanent Representative in New York, said a statement of the Foreign Office Spokesman here. 

“In violation of UNSC resolutions, the official map of India has been depicting the disputed territory of Jammu and Kashmir as part of India which is factually incorrect and legally untenable”, it said.

Through the passage of this Bill, the Indian government would penalize the individuals and organizations who depict Jammu and Kashmir as a disputed territory as per the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) resolutions, it said.

The letter also called upon the United Nations to uphold the UNSC resolutions and urged India to stop such acts which were in violation of international laws.

Pakistan has urged the international community and the United Nations to fulfill their commitment with the people of Jammu and Kashmir by holding an independent and impartial plebiscite under UN auspices, it said.- APP
