New Delhi, Sep 20: Pakistan failed to submit a resolution on Kashmir at the pertaining United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC) session as missed September 19-deadline.

The last date to submit a resolution on Kashmir at the 42nd UNHRC session was on September 19. The session which kicked-off on September 9, is slated to conclude on September 27.

Pakistan was unable to file a petition as it failed to amass the minimum support of the 16 countries for submitting the resolution. Moreover, Pakistan would have needed 24 votes (minimum) for the adoption of its resolution on Kashmir.

Pakistan Foreign Affairs Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi had vowed his country a resolution on Kashmir before departing for Geneva to participate in the session.

Before departing for Geneva, the Pakistan minister had claimed he will make use of the ongoing UNHRC sessions to raise “Indian state-monitored genocide in Jammu and Kashmir“.

Qureshi had said he will not only raise the Kashmir issue but will also move a Kashmir “resolution”, seeking international support for Islamabad’s case. However, the nation failed to deliver.
