India violating humanitarian laws: Kasuri

Suman Guha Mozumder at the United Nations | September 24, 2003 22:53 IST

Pakistan on Wednesday launched a twin broadside at India on the Kashmir issue.

While Pakistan President Pervez Musharraf used up much of his speech at the 58th session of the United Nations General Assembly to pillory India on Kashmir, his deputy, Foreign Minister Kurshid Kasuri, raised the Kashmir issue at the Security Council meeting called to discuss the world body's role on ensuring justice and the rule of law.

The new standards in dealing with violators of international humanitarian law must be applied equally to other conflict situations such as Jammu and Kashmir, Kasuri said.

He said the situation in Kashmir, where more than 80,000 people have been killed, called for the urgent attention of the international community.

"Justice for the people of occupied Kashmir requires an end to impunity for these crimes, and their closure through the realisation of the Security Council-mandated right of self-determination," Kasuri said.

"We are all familiar with the dictum: If you want peace, work for justice. And this applies in great measure to the situation in Kashmir."
