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.
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.
