Mirwaiz seeks UN intervention on Kashmir issue
Srinagar: Moderate Hurriyat leader Mirwaiz
Umar Farooq on Thursday sought intervention of the United Nations in
resolving Kashmir issue, saying bilateral talks between India
and Pakistan have failed to settle it.
"The United Nations has a moral and legal obligation to
help settle the issue of Kashmir in accordance with the wishes
and will of the people. Past failures to settle the question
should not deter the United Nations. Now more than ever, the
UN must renew efforts to bring about the promised settlement,"
the Mirwaiz said.
He was addressing the Kashmir Contact Group of
Organisation of Islamic Conference (OIC), which met on the
sidelines of the UN General Assembly in New York.
He said resolution of Kashmir issue cannot be left on
governments of India and Pakistan as bilateral efforts of
these countries in the past have failed.
The Mirwaiz said Hurriyat wants a peaceful and lasting
solution with the participation of all parties - India,
Pakistan and the people of Jammu and Kashmir.
