NEW YORK – Pakistan has urged the UN Human Rights Council to demand India to receive the fact-finding mission in Occupied Kashmir as suggested by the High Commissioner for Human Rights.

Speaking at a meeting of the UN Human Rights Council, the Pakistan delegate said that the Council must not fail the Kashmiri people who have been struggling for their right to self-determination.

He termed the Indian attempts at casting aspersions on Pakistan as an act of desperation by India, which is trying to distract attention of the international community from the terrible human rights situation in Occupied Kashmir.

The Pakistani delegate stressed that Jammu and Kashmir is not an Indian internal affair and that this flies in the face of UN resolutions on the subject.

He also denounced India for sponsoring terrorism through its state apparatus in various parts of Pakistan.
