She also told the Secretary General, that while India’s claim of carrying out a surgical strike across the Line of Control was false, India had by its own admission, committed aggression against Pakistan”, added the statement.

Lodhi during her meeting with Secretary General said that India had provoked crisis to divert international attention away from the indigenous Kashmiri uprising against Indian occupation.

“It is therefore essential to address the root cause of this crisis – India’s continuing denial of the right of self determination to the Kashmiri people. In this regard, she asked the Secretary general to play a role in bringing an end to the grave human rights violations committed by Indian security forces in Indian occupied Kashmir”, she added.

“Responding to the detailed briefing, the Secretary General repeated his offer of extending his good offices to both countries, which Pakistan has always welcomed but India has consistently declined”, concluded the official statement.
