France urged to play its role in resolving Kashmir issue


ISLAMABAD, Sep 29 (APP): The special envoys of Pakistan
on Thursday urged France, being a permanent member of the UN Security Council, to play its due role in resolving the long standing dispute of Jammu and Kashmir in accordance with the wishes of Kashmiri people and UN Security Council resolutions.

They stressed that international community should
pressurize India to stop the bloodshed of innocent Kashmiris
and resolve the dispute through a peaceful and meaningful
dialogue with Pakistan and the Kashmiri people, said a message received here.

The special envoys of the Prime Minister of Pakistan on
Jammu and Kashmir, Senator Raza Farooq and Rana Muhammad Afzal Khan expressed these views during their meeting with French parliamentarians at the French National Assembly.

They said India has once again unleashed a reign of
terror in Indian Occupied Kashmir since July this year. There
has been a wide spread repression and excessive use of force by the Indian Security forces in killing and maiming hundreds and thousands of innocent Kashmiris including children and women.

They said over 150 persons have been completely blinded
through indiscriminate use of pellet guns, adding, the
indigenous and spontaneous uprising of Kashmiris against
Indian tyranny, demanding their just right of freedom and
self-determination, will not be suppressed by brutal
atrocities and horrific human rights violations perpetrated by
the Indian occupation forces in Jammu and Kashmir.

Pakistan strongly rejects unfounded accusations by India
to deflect the world attention from its state terrorism in
Indian occupied Jammu and Kashmir, they added.

The envoys also met the representatives of
International Federation of Human Rights and Medicines Du
Monde and requested them for humanitarian and medical aid to the injured Kashmiris.
