Islamabad: Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi left for Switzerland on Monday for a three-day visit to represent Pakistan at the 42nd session of UN Human Rights Council (UNHRC) beginning in Geneva.
“The foreign minister is expected to address the session and present the case of Kashmiris before the delegates attending the forum from across the world.” Radio Pakistan reported.
Qureshi plans to raise awareness about India sponsored brutalities taking place in Kashmir. He will also highlight the threats posed by BJP led government to the security and the stability of the region.
The foreign minister will also hold meetings with leaders of the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation and the World Health Organisation in Geneva.
On August 5, the BJP led government under the Prime Minister Narendra Modi stripped Kashmiris of the constitutional rights they had for seven decades through a rushed presidential decree. An indefinite curfew was imposed in the Valley, and elected leaders were put under house arrest.
