UNSC Looks into the Matter
9th August 2021
An Islamabad-based report states that on the past Saturday UNSC launched an après conference in which it strongly renounced acts of terrorism in any form. The representatives offered their condolences to the families that have suffered the loss in the Dasu incident where 8 Chinese and Pakistani nationals were targeted to the terrorist attack. The council urged Pakistan to take serious, prompt, and adequate actions against these perpetrators. As they pose a serious threat to not only the natives but to the international community as well.
The members emphasized the importance of holding terrorist perpetrators, organizers, financiers, and sponsors accountable and bringing them to justice. The council issued a number of reiterative statements in which it declared these acts to be unjustified and terrorism to be a heinous crime.
The council endorsed the need for all states to fight with all their might and measures under the United Nations Charter and other obligations under international law, including international human rights law, international refugee law, and international humanitarian law, against terrorist acts that threaten international peace and security.
Pakistan hailed the reiteration of the spot of the world body on the Jammu and Kashmir dispute by the UN secretary-general speaker, announcing that it restated the UN position on the hoary dispute. In response to the statement made by the UN Secretary General’s spokesperson, Foreign Office spokesperson Zahid Hafeez Chaudhri said that the statement regurgitates that the UN position on the Jammu and Kashmir dispute was well-established and had not changed.
He said that Pakistan also appreciated the appropriateness of the statement as it coincided with the completion of two years of India’s illegal and unilateral actions of 5 August 2019, IIOJK that was in the destruction of the UN charter, UNSC determinations, and international law plus the Fourth Geneva Convention.
The spokesperson said that India would do well to remind itself that Jammu and Kashmir remained an internationally recognized dispute and one of the longest outstanding items on the UNSC’s agenda.
He mentioned that numerous UNSC resolutions had established that the final disposition of the state of Jammu and Kashmir would be made in complying with the need and choice of Kashmiri that would be recorded through a democratic and unbiased method.
