Pakistan has missed the deadline to file a resolution on Kashmir at the ongoing United Nations Human Rights Commission. The last day to file a request for a resolution during the 42nd UNHRC session was on September 19. The session which started on September 9 concludes on September 27.
Pakistan did not file the petition as it failed to garner the minimum support of 16 nations for admission of the request. Further adoption of the resolution would have required a minimum of 24 votes.
Pakistan’s Foreign Affairs Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi had promised his nation Pakistan a resolution on Kashmir before leaving for Geneva to attend the session.
Before leaving for Geneva, the Pak minister had claimed that he will use the UNHRC sessions to raise “Indian state-monitored genocide in J&K”.
Shah Mahmood Qureshi had said that he will not only raise the Kashmir issue but will also move a Kashmir “resolution”, seeking support for Pakistan’s case. However, he failed to deliver.
