New York (Web Desk): The United Nations Security Council (UNSC) has expressed deep concern over the current situation in the Indian Illegally Occupied Jammu and Kashmir (IIOJ&K).
The Council which met at the request of Pakistan on the occasion of completion of one year of Indian illegal actions to abrogate special status of occupied territory was briefed on the current situation.
The closed-door meeting was presided over by Ambassador of Indonesia.
The Security Council members expressed the hope that relevant parties would exercise restraint and properly resolve relevant issues through dialogue to jointly maintain regional peace and stability.
Chinese envoy to the UN Zhang Jun underlined that the Kashmir issue is a dispute left from the past and should be resolved peacefully in accordance with the UN Security Council resolutions and bilateral agreement.
On Wednesday, Pakistan observed Yaum-e-Istehsal to show solidarity with Kashmiris who have been braving the Indian government's 'brutal fascist military siege' since August 5 last year.
One minutes silence observed across the country in the morning to express solidarity with the oppressed Kashmiri people.
Since the abrogation of Article 370 of the Indian constitution in August, last year, the Modi-led fascist Indian government continues to adhere to the policy of coercion, torture and deception to undermine the Muslim majority character of Jammu and Kashmir by changing its demography.
