UN backs probe into atrocities in India-held Kashmir

ISLAMABAD: United Nations (UN) Secretary-General Antonio Guterres has supported the proposal by the world body’s human rights chief for an international investigation into the atrocities being committed by occupation forces in Indian occupied Kashmir.

He said this while addressing a press conference at UN Headquarters in New York. The world body chief also called upon India and Pakistan to find a political solution to the Kashmir dispute.

Responding to a question about his efforts to resolve the Kashmir dispute, the secretary-general said, “It is clear for me that only political solutions can address political problems.”

He expressed the hope that in future, both countries will create a mechanism of dialogue that will lead to finding adequate political solution.

Pakistan has always welcomed mediation offers from the United Nations but India rejects them, claiming that Kashmir is a bilateral issue.
