He noted that Pakistan had “unveiled a detailed dossier on gross and systematic violations of human rights by the Indian Security Forces” in the region.
He further said in this regard, “The onus remains on India to create a conducive environment for meaningful and result-oriented engagement with Pakistan which requires that Delhi reverse its unilateral and illegal measures instituted since 5 August 2019; ends its oppression and human rights violations against the people of Kashmir; and reverses the demographic changes in the occupied territory.”
