Pakistan urges UN chief for urgent steps as Gutteres voices concern on Kashmir situation

Pakistani Ambassador to the United Nations, UN-Mal Harrodi, stressed the urgent need to take practical steps to deal with the worsening situation in India's occupied Kashmir when meeting with the UN secretary. According to the information Antonio Guterres on Monday.

Ambassador Rhodi said at a 30-minute meeting in the 38-story office of the UN Secretary-General, a serious political and humanitarian crisis that began to unfold after last month's "illegal" agreement against India's conflicting states is now a threat to international peace and security.

She told the UN secretary-general that there is an urgent need to lead "preventive" diplomacy before the crisis can get out of control as the tragedy between Jammu and Kashmir deepens.

It is time for Pakistan's envoy to represent the highlighted laws, justice and human rights.
On August 5, tensions between nuclear armed India and Pakistan increased, as the Modi government abolished special status for Jammu and Kashmir, guaranteed under Article 370 of the Constitution, and made the territory banned indefinitely.

To prevent intense backlash, India sent thousands of troops to reinforce its control over the occupied Kashmir. Telephone and internet lines were blocked and top political leaders, including former ministers, were detained.

In a meeting with the secretary-general, Mr. Lodi said India's illegal entry into Jammu and Kashmir triggered a number of crises. Kashmir's political and human rights crisis, its conflict with Pakistan, the parties to the dispute, and the closure of it have resulted in an increasing humanitarian crisis on the 36th day.

Pakistani envoys also highlighted the gravity of the situation in vivid terms: 24 hours curfew of 36 days, 36 days of interruption of communications, 36 days of food and essential supplies; 36 days without information about the welfare of family and friends; 36 days of darkness and constant fear of the unknown.

Ambassador Rodi said reports of widespread torture and arbitrary arrest of Kashmir are coming in, and thousands of people, including young children, are burning at home overnight without trace.

She said the territory is on the verge of a health emergency, with a shortage of endangered supplies, including life-saving drugs, and the patient losing mercy on the element.

She said that the situation on the ground is owing to a full-fledged humanitarian crisis, and that degree will only be known after the restrictions of the Draconian are lifted.

Ambassador Rody said the illegal Indian merger between Jammu and Kashmir was a serious violation of the Security Council resolution and an insult to the rules-based international system.

Meanwhile, the Secretary General expressed concern about the situation in Jammu and Kashmir and said that the way of dialogue should always be open.
