Islamabad: Pakistan Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi on Friday raised the Kashmir issue during his meeting with the visiting UN General Assembly President Maria Fernanda Espionosa.
Espionosa arrived in Islamabad on her first official trip to the Asia-Pacific region since assuming office in September last year. She met Qureshi in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs where the two sides also held talks on different issues.
Qureshi said that he discussed regional and international issues including Kashmir with the UNGA chief and “apprised her of Pakistan’s grave concern over the gross human rights violations” in Kashmir.
He called for implementing the UN Security Council’s resolutions on Kashmir in letter and spirit to resolve this longstanding issue.
Qureshi alleged that India was continuously violating the ceasefire agreement on the Line of Control (LoC) and urged the international community to help resolve the issue.
