New York – Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif is scheduled to address the UN General Assembly (UNGA) today (Wednesday) during which he will prominently raise the issue of human rights violations in the Indian-held Kashmir.
Nawaz Sharif is likely to devote a large part of his address to the UN General Assembly for exposing Indian human rights abuses in the Occupied Kashmir. He will also urge the world body to intervene to enforce UN resolutions for a plebiscite in Kashmir.
The General Debate of the UN General Assembly opened Tuesday, with US President Barack Obama making his final appearance as Commander-in-Chief at the 71st session.
Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif will address world leaders from the UNGA podium in the morning session on Wednesday.
PM Nawaz appears set to take an aggressive stand on Kashmir at the world body, having vowed in Pakistan to emphatically highlight the issue and the human rights abuses by India in the Valley.
“Pakistan will continue to extend moral, diplomatic and political support to Kashmiris,” Sharif had said last week, alleging that atrocities in Kashmir had touched extremes.
