On Kashmiris' Right to Self-Determination Day, President Dr Arif Alvi and Prime Minister Imran Khan urged the United Nations (UN) to honour its commitment of providing the right to self-determination to the people of Indian Illegally Occupied Jammu and Kashmir (IIOJ&K).

The leaders reiterated that Pakistan will continue its strong and steadfast support for the people of Kashmir till realisation of their inalienable right to self-determination in accordance with the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) resolutions.

In separate messages, Alvi said the international community cannot ignore their responsibility in guaranteeing a free and fair plebiscite in occupied Kashmir.

PM Imran noted that for over seven decades, the people of Kashmir have witnessed a life of state-sponsored cruelty and terrorism.

"Owing to Indian intransigence, the UNSC has failed to fulfill its pledge to the Kashmiri people," he added.

“Despite suffering 73 years of brutal Indian Occupation, generation after generation of the Kashmiri people remain steadfast in the demand for their inalienable right to self-determination as guaranteed to them under the UN Charter and by the UNSC,” the premier said in a series of tweets.

He further reiterated that Pakistan stands unequivocally with the Kashmiri people in their struggle for freedom from the tyranny of “one of the most ruthless, inhumane and illegal occupation in modern history”.

Imran called on the international community to take action against the well-documented human rights violations being committed with impunity by Indian Occupation forces against innocent Kashmiris.

Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi reaffirmed Pakistan's full support to the people of Kashmir in their demand for realisation of their inalienable right to self-determination.

He urged India to allow the United Nations to investigate the grave human rights violation in IIOJ&K and said the international community must continue to support Kashmir for basic human rights and fundamental freedom.
