Mirwaiz urges UN chief to implement recommendations of UN rights report on Kashmir


Hurriyat (M) chairman Mirwaiz Umar Farooq on Saturday urged the United Nations (UN) secretary general Antonio Guterres to take consistent action to implement the recommendations of the United Nations Human Rights Commission report.

“While the people of Jammu & Kashmir welcomed the long overdue UNHRC report on severe HR violations in J&K, we urge the UN @antonioguterres to walk the talk and take immediate steps to implement the recommendations of the report!,”: Mirwaiz tweeted.

The UN chief had earlier said his office did its job by producing a detailed report on human rights situation in Kashmir.

“In relation to the human rights situation, the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights has produced recently a very detailed report. So, the UN has clearly done its job in that regard,” Guterres replied to a question on the situation in Kashmir, news agency PTI reported.

He also hoped that India and Pakistan will engage in a “meaningful dialogue” to resolve their issues.

The UN chief also said he has been offering his “good offices in relation to the dialogue between the two countries that, until now, had no conditions of success.”

Guterres was speaking to reporters at the UN headquarters in New York.

“I hope that the importance of both India and Pakistan is such in international affairs, I hope that the two countries will be able to engage in a meaningful dialogue,” he said.

The UN chief was responding to a question on his repeated urging of dialogue between the two South Asian neighbours.
