Theh High ih Com­mis­sioner paid tribute to the valiant Kash­miris for their im­mense sac­ri­fices. He stated that Pak­istan would never re­lent in ren­der­ing its moral, po­lit­i­cal and diplo­matic sup­port to the peo­ple of Kash­mir. The High Com­mis­sioner called upon the in­ter­na­tional com­mu­nity to be cog­nizant of its re­spon­si­bil­i­ties on Kash­mir dis­pute be­tween Pak­istan and In­dia and urged it to de­mand an in­de­pen­dent in­ves­ti­ga­tion into the on­go­ing gross hu­manh right­sih vi­o­la­tion­sil i i in In­diandi Oc­cu­piedid Kash­mir and to ful­fill its obli­ga­tions un­der the rel­e­vant UN Se­cu­rity Coun­cil (UNSC) Res­o­lu­tions on the Jammu & Kash­mir dis­pute.

The High Com­mis­sioner re­it­er­ated Pak­istan’s com­mit­ment to­wards a peace­ful set­tle­ment of the Kash­mir dis­pute with In­dia in ac­cor­dance with the rel­e­vant United Na­tion Se­cu­rity Coun­cil Res­o­lu­tions and the as­pi­ra­tions of the peo­ple of Jammu and Kash­mir.
