In a reply to Pakistan’s statements regarding Kashmir, at a United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC) in Islamabad, India urged it’s neighbour to fulfill it’s obligation under the UN Security Council Resolution, and vacate the illegal occupation of Kashmir, on Wednesday.
India alleged that Pakistan uses terrorism as a form of state sponsored action, and that it provides sanctuary to UN designated terrorists.
In it’s reply, they made it explicit that said they deeply regret Pakistan’s continued misuse of the Council, pertinent to it’s occupation of the Indian state of Jammu and Kashmir
In it’s response, India said:
Pakistan has had territorial ambitions over Kashmir since 1947 that have found concrete expression in the aggression it embarked on in 1947, 1965 and 1999. As on date, Pakistan is in illegal and forcible occupation of approximately 78,000 sq kms of Indian Territory in Jammu and Kashmir. We also call upon the Council to urge Pakistan to fulfill its obligation under UN Security Council resolutions to vacate illegal occupation of Pakistan Occupied Kashmir.
India further targeted Pakistan, urging them to stop supporting violence and terrorism in any part of India, and to refrain from meddling in any of their internal affairs.
Pakistan will be well-advised to focus its energies on setting its own house in order and acting against the perpetrators of terrorist attacks on its neighbours instead of ritually raking up alleged human rights violations elsewhere. We ask Pakistan to stop inciting and supporting violence and terrorism in any part of India and refrain from meddling in our internal affairs in any manner.
Their attention then turned to the Organization of Islamic Conference (OIC) criticising their position on the issues prevalent in Jammu and Kashmir, as well as their alleged inability to understand India’s position.
We note with regret that the delegate from the OIC has used this august Council to comment upon India’s internal affairs. Inherent in OIC’s statements on the issue of Jammu and Kashmir is a complete inability to understand India’s position. Jammu and Kashmir is an integral part of India and the OIC has no locus standi in matters concerning India’s internal affairs.
