Pakistan urges UN to promote universal accountability for HR violations in Kashmir, Palestine

Pakistan has urged the United Nations to promote universal accountability for grave human rights violations, especially in situation of foreign occupation in Kashmir and Palestine.

Addressing a virtual meeting on human rights violations, Deputy Permanent Representative of Pakistan to the UN, Ambassador Aamir Khan stressed that there should be no disparity between such violations in two different circumstances.

He noted that we should not forget the situations of Palestine and Jammu and Kashmir, where human rights are being trampled every day, and counter-terrorism laws are used to silence civil society.

The Pakistani envoy urged the international community to make pronouncements on violations of human rights in Jammu and Kashmir and in Palestine as well, just like they were making pronouncements elsewhere.

He said that the application of human rights in the Charter should be universal and impartial.
