Pakistan wants UNSC to stand for law and justice for people of occupied Kashmir


UNITED NATIONS, Aug 14 (APP):Pakistan has expressed the hope that the 15-member Security Council would meet soon to deal with the grave situation in Indian Occupied Kashmir resulting from India’s move to annex the disputed region, Ambassador Maleeha Lodhi said Tuesday,

“We would like the Security Council to take note of the illegal annexation by India,” she said in an interview with BBC News, after making a formal request for a Council meeting.

The request for the meeting was contained in a letter from Pakistan Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi that Ambassador Lodhi presented on Tuesday to Polish Ambassador Joanna Wronecka, who is the president of the 15-member Council for the month of August. The Council president will now hold consultations with Council members and fix a date to discuss the issue.
