Pakistan lashes out at India
While speaking in the 72nd Regular Session of the United Nations General Assembly meeting held in New York City in the United States, the newly inducted Prime Minister of Pakistan, Shahid Khaqan Abbasi, has lashed out at India by saying that the Indian government continues to brutally suppress the legitimate struggle for self-determination of the people of Jammu and Kashmir.
The Pakistan PM, in his maiden speech in the United Nations, has urged the body of world leaders to send a special envoy to the disputed state of Kashmir to implement the unimplemented resolution of the United Nations Security Council on the issue.
The aforesaid resolution, which was unanimously passed by the UNSC, stipulates that the concerned should conduct a UN-supervised referendum to let the people decide their destiny.
In his speech, the Pak Supremo has used the names ‘India’ and ‘Kashmir’ several times. Indeed, the Kashmir issue has been the dominant subject of his speech.
Noteworthy, there have been provocative references in the speech about the Indian security forces and security policy.
The UNGA, which began on September 12, will end on September 25. The theme of the 72nd UNGA is “Focusing on People: Striving for Peace and a Decent Life for All on a Sustainable Planet”.
