NEW YORK: The Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi met the United Kingdom’s Minister of State for the Commonwealth and the United Nations Lord Tariq Ahmad at the margins of the 74th Session of the UN General Assembly in New York.

Expressing concern at the deteriorating human rights situation in Indian Occupied Jammu & Kashmir (IOJ&K), the foreign minister said that the international outcry and outrage against the Indian atrocities continued to grow stronger with each passing day. He said that dozens of protests had been held across the world including in the UK against Indian atrocities.


The foreign minister said that the meeting of the United Nations Security Council on the situation in Jammu & Kashmir not only reaffirmed the disputed nature of the territory but also signified that the Council was cognizant of the evolving situation and the potential risks to regional peace and security.

Shah Mahmood Qureshi called on members of the UN Security Council to fulfill their primary responsibility for maintenance of international peace and security.

The foreign minister welcomed the efforts of the British Parliamentarians as well as Pakistani and Kashmiri diasporas in highlighting the gross violations of human rights in IOJ&K.

During the meeting, other issues of regional and international importance also came under discussion.
