ISLAMABAD October 15 ( APP): President Mamnoon Hussain has urged the United Nations to fulfil its promises regarding the Kashmir issue for durable peace in South Asia.
He was addressing a joint session of AJK Legislative Assembly and Kashmir Council in Muzaffarabad on Saturday.
The President said the Kashmir issue cannot be resolved without giving right to self-determination to the people of Kashmir.
He said if the UN resolutions and the Indian promises regarding Kashmir issue are not honoured peace remains elusive in the region.
The President said India must withdraw long imposed curfew in the occupied territory and revive the freedom of expression. The human rights groups should also be given access to the territory and detained innocent Kashmiris be released.
Mamnoon Hussain said the martyrdom of Burhan Wani has infused a new spirit into the freedom movement, and freedom is not too far.
He said Pakistan will never leave the Kashmiris alone in their struggle for the just cause, and it will continue moral, political, and diplomatic support to the Kashmiris.
He paid rich tributes to the Kashmiris who sacrificed their lives for freedom.
