Pakistan has expressed deep concern at the absence of action by UN Security Council (UNSC)to halt India’s violations of human rights and its resolutions in the disputed state of Jammu and Kashmir.

Munir Akram underlined that the central purpose of the 15-member world body is to settle conflicts while participating in a debate on ‘The Role of Reconciliation in Maintaining International Peace and Security’ in the UNSC, Permanent Representative of Pakistan to the United Nations.

Munir Akram said unfortunately, the UNSC has had uneven success in resolving threats to and breaches of international peace and security. India annexed Jammu and Kashmir on August 5 in violation of the UN resolutions and placed the disputed state under a repressive lockdown.

He said since then the internet and phone communications are cut off and thousands of Kashmiris have been arrested, especially young men.
