Pakistan remains determined in supporting Kashmiris’ right to self-determination: Alvi

President Dr Arif Alvi and Caretaker Prime Minister Anwaar ul Haq Kakar have stated that that Pakistan remains determined in supporting the right to self-determination of Kashmiris through a free and impartial plebiscite as per the United Nations Security Council resolutions.
The President, in his message in connection with the Right to Self-Determination Day being observed today, said our strong and steadfast moral, political and diplomatic support for the Kashmiri people will continue till the realisation of this inalienable right.

On the other hand Caretaker Prime Minister Anwaar ul Haq Kakar has said the international community especially the United Nations, bears the responsibility to ensure that the people of Indian illegally Occupied Jammu and Kashmir exercise their inalienable right to self-determination.

In his message on the occasion of Right to Self Determination Day, he regretted that despite more than seven and a half decades, the oppressed people of IIOJK have not been able to exercise this fundamental right. He said India continues to oppress the people of Jammu and Kashmir to break their will. Since 5 August 2019, India is engaged in a vicious exercise, aimed at altering the demographic structure and political landscape of IIOJK, with a view to turning Kashmiris into a disempowered community in their own land.
Anwaar ul Haq Kakar said the Indian Supreme Court’s recent verdict on the status of IIOJK is yet another step towards the denial of the Kashmiri people’s right to self-determination. The genuine aspirations of the Kashmiris cannot be wished away through domestic legislation and engineered judicial verdicts. He said Pakistan will continue to extend its full political, diplomatic and moral support to the valiant Kashmiri people in their just struggle for their rights including the inalienable right to self-determination, in accordance with the relevant resolutions of the United Nations Security Council.
