Kashmir Solidarity Day was observed across the country on Monday to express solidarity with the Kashmiri people who are struggling for their right to self-determination under the United Nations resolutions.

In his message on the Kashmir Solidarity Day, President Mamnoon Hussain said that the dream of peace and prosperity in the region would remain elusive without resolving the Kashmir issue. He called upon the world community to play its due role in seeking an end to the brutalities, violation of human rights and the reign of terror unleashed by Indian forces.

In his separate message, Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi said that the people and government of Pakistan reaffirm their continued unflinching moral, diplomatic and political support to the oppressed Kashmiri people in their legitimate struggle in the face of increasing Indian brutalities and gross human rights violations.

“Pakistan calls upon the international community to urge India to respect the human rights charter, put an immediate end to the rights violations of innocent Kashmiris and ensure expedited resolution of the Kashmir issue line with the UNSC resolutions and the aspirations of the Kashmiri people. “This is essential for regional peace and development,” he said.
