Pakistan urges UNSC to hold India accountable for war crimes in IOK

General Official News

Islamabad, May 28, 2020 (PPI-OT): Pakistan has urged the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) to intervene and hold India accountable for its grave breaches of international humanitarian law and war crimes in occupied Kashmir and take steps to settle the decades-old Kashmir dispute.

Speaking at the virtual meeting of the Security Council on the ‘Protection of Civilians in Armed Conflict in New York, Pakistan’s Permanent Representative Munir Akram warned that inaction by the 15-member body in cases of foreign aggression and occupation comes at a high human cost.

The Pakistani envoy urged the Council to focus on the root causes of emerging and long-pending conflicts, including Kashmir and Palestine, and find inclusive political solutions. He said that India had callously exploited the coronavirus crisis to enhance its control of the occupied territory, already reeling from a nine-month-long digital and physical lockdown.
