An embassy in Qatar got some news
In a bid to show solidarity with the people of ‘India-held Kashmir’, the Pakistan embassy in Doha hosted a function on Sunday, which was attended by a large gathering.
The programme began with the screening of a documentary highlighting the struggle of the people for the right to self-determination, the embassy reported in a press statement.
Pakistan ambassador Shahzad Ahmad, while addressing the gathering, said the government of Pakistan has declared an additional Kashmir Solidarity Day in light of the deteriorating situation in the state.
He added that Pakistan has given moral, diplomatic and political support to the cause of the Kashmiri people, ever since the partition in 1947, for their right to self-determination, as enshrined in the United Nations resolutions on the issue.
Ahmad noted that the event serves as a reminder to the international community of their “obligations to the Kashmiri people.”
The right to self-determination, the right to self-expression, and the protection of human rights, are universal rights accepted in modern society and should be available to all, which is however not the case in Indian-occupied Kashmir, he pointed out.
