Pakistan an Illegal Occupant in Kashmir: India at UNHRC
Rajiv K Chander said that the neutrality of the phrase “Indian-administered Jammu and Kashmir” is artificial.
At the 35th session of the United Nations Human Rights Council, India highlighted Pakistan’s role in supporting terrorism in Jammu and Kashmir.
India's Permanent Representative at the United Nations Rajiv K Chander said that Jammu and Kashmir is an integral part of India and Pakistan remains in illegal occupation of it. Therefore, the neutrality of the phrase ‘Indian-administered Jammu & Kashmir’ is artificial.
“The central problem in Jammu & Kashmir is cross-border terrorism, and Pakistan’s use of terrorism as an instrument of state policy. This fact needs due recognition by one and all. We firmly believe that a policy of zero tolerance to terrorism is as much an international obligation as it is a commitment to our own people,” Chander told ANI.
He also said that J&K has an elected democratic government that represents all sections of the people unlike the situation in Pakistan-Occupied Kashmir.
