The Kashmiris reject Indian occupation and only want their inalienable right to self-determination according to the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) resolutions.

A report released by Kashmir Media Service on Friday stated the 5th January resolution of the UNSC provides the road-map for resolving the lingering Kashmir dispute.

The report said the Kashmir dispute is the oldest issue in the UNSC and its resolutions pledge the right to self-determination to the Kashmiri people.

The report further said India’s August 5, 2019 illegal and unilateral actions violate the UN resolutions on Kashmir. It said despite the passage of 74 years, the Kashmiris are still waiting for fulfillment of the promise of holding an UN-supervised plebiscite.

The report maintained that the UN is legally and morally obliged to secure implementation of its resolutions on Kashmir as settlement of the lingering dispute as per the Kashmiris’ aspirations is imperative for peace and stability in South Asia.
