A Kashmiri leader urged the United Nations secretary General to press Indian troops withdrawal for peacefull negotiation conditions in Himalayan region.
The Chairman of All Parties Hurriyet Conference, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq has repeated public demand to Ban Ki-Moon to impress upon India to pull out its troops from occupied Kashmir so that a congenial atmosphere for the resolution of Kashmir dispute is created, Kashmiri Media reported.
The APHC Chairman talking to media men in Srinagar welcomed Ban Ki-Moon's assertion on Kashmir that it was a long pending dispute that required an immediate resolution through negotiations. Mirwaiz appealed India to give up its intransigence on the Kashmir dispute.
United Nations Security Council passed a resolution, 1949, for upholding the right to self- determination of the people of Jammu and Kashmir.
Organisation for Islamic Conference in Casablanca also passed similar resolution in 1993 and the European Parliament adopted on 24 May 2007 in which the European Parliament upheld the Kashmiris right to self-determination.
In New York, a large number of Pakistanis and Kashmiris gathered in front of Indian Mission in the United Nations to protest against the continued illegal occupation of Kashmir by India. The speakers on the occasion called upon India to let Kashmiris exercise the right to self-determination to decide their future.
In Washington, the Executive Director of Kashmir Centre, Dr Ghulam Nabi Fai in a statement said, the Kashmir dispute can never be resolved without the participation and consent of the people of Jammu and Kashmir.
Meanwhile Farooq Farooq has urged India to resolve the Kashmir dispute through peaceful and meaningful negotiations involving Pakistan and Kashmiris' genuine leadership.
"India has to come out of the denial mode and start a meaningful, sincere and purposeful dialogue with Pakistan and Kashmiri leadership. Violence isn't solution to any problem in the world and recently we saw in Gaza that after weeks of violence finally negotiations had to take a front seat."
