Islamabad, October 28, 2021 (PPI-OT):Permanent Representative of Pakistan to the United Nations, Munir Akram has urged youth to get involved in building public opinion to support Kashmiri people’s struggle for their right to self-determination. Addressing Pakistani-American students in New York who participated in an event to observe Kashmir Black Day at Pakistan’s Consulate, he asked them to help create awareness among people in the United States about the Kashmir issue, exposing the gross human rights abuses in the disputed territory.

Munir Akram said on the diplomatic front, Pakistan is doing all it can to enable Kashmiri people to exercise their right of self-determination through a UN-supervised plebiscite in accordance with the UN Security Council resolutions. At the UN, he said, as a result of Pakistan’s efforts, the Security Council has met thrice on Kashmir since 2019 when India’s annexed occupied Kashmir. He said Pakistan will continue to press ahead to build up international press pressure on India to resolve the decades-old dispute.
