Jammu and Kashmir "was, is and shall forever" remain an integral part of India: Indian diplomat at UNHRC's meeting

AIR PIC
Jammu and Kashmir "was, is and shall forever" remain an integral part of India, a top Indian diplomat asserted at the UN Human Rights Council's meeting in Geneva on Wednesday, a day after Pakistan sought the international community's intervention on the Kashmir issue.

Speaking at the 43rd session of the UN Human Rights Council which is being held in Switzerland from February 24 to March 20, Vikas Swarup, Secretary (West) in the Ministry of External Affairs, described Pakistan as the "epicentre of global terrorism". He called for decisive action against those who direct, control, fund and shelter terrorists, in an obvious reference to Pakistan, which is accused by its neighbours of providing safe havens to terror groups.


He said It is ironical that a nation that has become the world's leading exporter of terror and violence seeks to lecture others about human rights. He added that Pakistan would do well to look to its own house and introspect about the condition of its people, especially its minorities.

Swarup said the transformative changes wrought by Indian Parliament last August were meant to strengthen the integration of the State. 


It was intended to ensure the extension of all progressive legislations passed for the entire country to cover this region, and to resume the pace of socio-economic development in the Union Territory of Jammu and Kashmir.
