Srinagar, July 23, 2014 (PPI-OT): In occupied Kashmir, the Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front Chairman, Muhammad Yasin Malik has said that the United Nations is a forum that despite its lacunas and shortcomings still stands as a symbol of international peace and tranquillity.
Muhammad Yasin Malik in a statement in Srinagar said, “The UN role vis-a-vis the dispute over Jammu Kashmir is an established fact and cutting down or denying this role will bring only disaster to the region.”
Muhammad Yasin Malik while commenting upon the recent developments regarding Indian efforts to close down UN observer’s office in Delhi said that the growing aggression of Indian state against the people of Kashmir and its decision to close down UN offices in Delhi would bring nothing but distress and disaster to South Asia.
He said that cutting down or denying the United Nations role would turn this region more violent and Kashmir might grow as another Afghanistan in South Asia. He said Indian decisions to change the nature of Kashmir issue and efforts to close down the UN observers offices in Delhi is actually like turning a blind eye towards the reality over Jammu and Kashmir.
He said it is UN presence that guarantees peace and stability in the region and abolishing this role is like pushing Kashmir towards the wall and transforming it into another Afghanistan.
