Prime Minister Imran Khan has commended the 58 countries that joined Pakistan in United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC) and demanded that India stop its use of force in Indian occupied Kashmir (IoK).

The premier took to his Twitter handle and wrote that he welcomes the European Union’s (EU) call in the council for a peaceful solution of the Kashmir dispute in line with United Nations Security Council (UNSC) resolutions, international law and bilateral agreements.

“I commend the 58 countries that joined Pakistan in Human Rights Council on September 10 reinforcing demands of international community for India to stop use of force, lift siege, remove other restrictions, respect and protect Kashmiris’ rights and resolve Kashmir dispute through UNSC resolutions,” the premier further wrote.

Pakistan along with 58 countries had submitted a joint statement in the UNHRC earlier this week. The joint statement called for ‘ending the communications shutdown and release of arbitrarily detained people and to halt the excessive use of force, especially the use of pellet guns in the region’.

The statement also sought a peaceful resolution of the Jammu and Kashmir dispute through the implementation of the UNSC resolutions.
