Pakistan Prime Minister's National Security and Foreign Affairs Advisor Sartaj Aziz said that Kashmir was among the oldest unresolved international disputes at the UN forum.
Speaking at the Annual Coordination Meeting of the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) Foreign Ministers here yesterday, Aziz also accused Indian security forces of human rights violations and ceasefire violations.
Aziz asked the OIC member states to impress upon India to end its alleged repression of Kashmiris and to come to the negotiating table for peaceful resolution of all outstanding issues including the Kashmir, according to a press release.
“He regretted that instead of responding to Pakistan’s gesture of goodwill, the Indian side was not only interfering in Pakistan's internal matters but was also supporting terrorism inside Pakistan," the release said.
Aziz also said the denial of right of self-determination to Kashmiri people continued to stain the collective conscience of the international community.
"He clarified that elections held under foreign occupation could not be a substitute to the exercise of right to self-determination under a UN plebiscite," the release said.
The meeting, convened on the sidelines of the 70th session of the UN General Assembly, was chaired by Foreign Minister of Kuwait Sheikh Sabah Al-Khaled Al-Sabah and attended by Foreign Ministers of OIC member states.
