Srinagar: The United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) has unanimously passed a Pakistan-sponsored resolution, reaffirming the universal realisation of the right of self-determination to people, media reports said.
The resolution, co-sponsored by 75 countries adopted in the third committee session says the right of self- determination to the people is a fundamental condition for effective guarantee and observance of human rights.
Reports quoting Pakistan’s Ambassador to the UN Maleeha Lodhi said that the adoption of the resolution reaffirms the inviolability of the right to self-determination for all peoples without exception, including Jammu and Kashmir.
The resolution is expected to come up for General Assembly’s endorsement next month.
