Islamabad: Amid the ongoing anti-India uprising, Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif has nominated 22 parliamentarians as special envoys for highlighting Kashmir issue in different parts of the World.
Sharif urged the special envoys to ensure their efforts for highlighting the Kashmir cause across the world so that he can shake the collective conscience of the international community during his address at the UN next month.
“We will remind the United Nations its long-held promise of self determination to the Kashmiri people. We will also make it clear to India that it was India that approached the United Nations several decades ago on Kashmir dispute but now it is not fulfilling its promise,” he said.
The Prime Minister emphasized that this anniversary of the UN ought to be a “catalyst spurring the body into action.”
“Kashmir dispute is the most persistent failure of the United Nations and world body must establish its relevance,” he added.
