The resolution moved by Pakistan People’s Party leader Sherry Rehman also reemphasised Pakistan’s commitment to continue its “moral and diplomatic support” to the Kashmiris.

The Pulwama encounter in Jammu and Kashmir left seven civilians dead after the Indian Army opened fire during violent clashes that broke out following an anti-terror operation. Three militants of Hizbul Mujahideen and an Indian Army soldier were killed in the operation also killed in the gunfight. One of the militants, Zahoor Ahmad Thokar, was a former Indian Army soldier who had joined Hizbul Mujahideen in June 2017.

The President said that peace in the region will remain elusive without resolution of the Kashmir issue.
