Er Rasheed welcomes India, Pakistan for voting against US

Srinagar: Awami Itehaad Party (AIP) president and MLA Langate, Engineer Abdul Rasheed Sheikh Saturday welcomed India and Pakistan’s stand by voting in favour of resolution at the United Nations condemning United States for declaring Jerusalem as capital of Israel.
According to the statement issued here, Er Rasheed has asked the two countries to implement the resolution passed by the UN on Kashmir.
“It is good to see the traditional rivals like India and Pakistan on the same page over Palestinian cause, but looks strange when Kashmiris get bullets and pellets for raising much similar voices as being raised by Palestinians. New Delhi needs to be reminded of the fact that it is the same UN which has passed resolutions promising right to self determination for people of Jammu and Kashmir on both sides of LoC,” he said.
“If New Delhi often claims that the resolutions on J&K are not mandatory, it must be knowing that the resolution which UN Assembly recently passed with India’s support condemning US is also not binding on US and New Delhi should not have voted if it treats these resolutions as just piece of paper,” he said, adding that under such circumstances there is no fun of having a league of United Nations.
“While India and Pakistan voting in favour of Palestinians may hardly make a difference on the ground, both the countries can make history by accepting UN resolutions on Jammu and Kashmir,” he said, adding that New Delhi must take a moral stand and accept UN resolutions on J&K, so that India’s dignity and credibility in the world community is restored.
“While Pakistan has always supported UN resolutions but should not do any such thing that gives India a chance to run away from UN resolutions. Pakistan needs to clear few apprehensions on Gilgit Baltistan and CPEC, so that New Delhi is debarred from giving lame excuses and the resolutions are implemented sooner than later for a durable peace in the sub-continent,” AIP president added.
