Munir Akram, Pakistan’s Permanent Representative to the United Nations (UN), has urged resolution of Kashmir Dispute while meeting UNGA president.

In his meeting with UN General Assembly President Tijjani Muhammad-Bande he apprised him regarding the deteriorated situation of the Indian occupied Jammu and Kashmir (IOJK).

Akram said that the situation in Indian Occupied Kashmir, which has been under a repressive military lockdown for over four months is now further worsening.

He urged that the international community must play its role to resolve the Kashmir dispute as it can become a flashpoint between two nuclear-armed states.

Munir Akram apprised Tijjani Muhammad-Bande that despite the lapse of one hundred days of India’s inhuman curfew and blanket restrictions on all forms of communications as well as systematic intimidation, normalcy has still not returned and fear grips the disputed state.

He also discussed in the meeting regarding Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) with focus on the goal of zero hunger aimed at ending hunger, achieving food security, improving nutrition and promoting sustainable agriculture as well as measures to curb illicit financial flows.
