Islamabad, Sept 23 (KMS): Sardar Masood Khan, President Azad Jammu and Kashmir, has said that it is unfortunate that the United Nations during its General Assembly session has not put Kashmir on its agenda.

Prime Minister Imran Khan will address the UN session on September 23

United Nations, Sept 16 (KMS): India once again suffers a humiliating failure at the United nations as despite its best efforts, Kashmir has been included in the agenda of the annual session of the General Assembly (UNGA) as an unresolved dispute.

The 75th annual session of the UN General Assembly has begun. The session in New York will be virtual due to the coronavirus epidemic, in which leaders of the member states will participate online.

India lobbied and tried hard at the diplomatic level not to include the Kashmir in the agenda for this year’s session in order to cover up its actions on August 5 last year and atrocities on the Kashmiris. However, its all efforts failed and the Kashmir dispute was kept on the UNGA agenda. »

Islamabad, August 23 (KMS): Syed Inayatullah Andrabi, a Kashmiri intellectual  presently based in London, has said that so-called Kashmiri mainstream political parties are left with only two options – either to serve the interests of the occupier power, India or stand with the Kashmiris’ honour, dignity and freedom.

Syed Inayatullah Andrabi, elaborating his point in his latest tweets, said that National Conference starting to reactivate its politics is a significant thing to happen post Aug 5, 2019. He said that with no political space left to move forward, the party has to make a lifetime choice, more serious than merely existential, between two options.

He pointed out that the one option is that the National Conference can re-invent itself learning from over 70 years of its interaction with India including the post August, 2019 experiences, and decide to stand with the honour, dignity and freedom of Kashmir. »
