UNITED NATIONS - Pakistan told the UN Friday that its decolonisation agenda would be incomplete without settling the decades-old Indo-Pak dispute over Kashmir, where more than 100 freedom-seeking people have been killed over the past two months. A peaceful resolution of this dispute is imperative for durable peace, stability and progress in South Asia, Ambassador Abdullah Hussain Haroon told the General Assemblys Fourth (Decolonisation) Committee on Friday. Speaking in a debate on decolonisation matters, the Pakistan Ambassador reiterated his governments willingness to engage India in a comprehensive dialogue to normalise relations between the two countries, by finding amicable solutions to the Jammu and Kashmir dispute, which has been at the heart of conflict and tension. This dispute, recognised by many UN resolutions, is about exercise of the right to self-determination by the Kashmiri people through a free, fair and impartial plebiscite, under the UN auspices, he told delegates from around the world. In the Middle East, Ambassador Haroon said, the continued denial of the right to self-determination of the Palestinian people is the core underlying cause of conflict and the primary impediment to comprehensive peace. Pakistan continues to support the just struggle of the Palestinian people for peace and freedom. The Pakistan Ambassador said the General Assembly had reaffirmed time and again that colonialism was incompatible with the Charter and Universal Declaration on Human Rights. In its historic resolution 1514 (1960), the General Assembly emphatically stated that the subjection of peoples to alien subjugation was a denial of fundamental human rights. However, he pointed out that despite such unambiguous pronouncements, decolonisation was painstakingly slow. Ambassador Haroon said Pakistan, mindful of the Decolonisation Committees central aim, hoped that the deliberations would review the status of implementation of earlier UN resolutions. The Committee, he added, could only be as effective as the wider UN membership. Political will from the General Assembly and Security Council should be shown in greater earnest. Concerted efforts should be made for uniform and non-selective implementation of the Security Council resolutions and the recommendations contained therein. Selective implementation should be avoided as it eroded confidence in the system. Selective implementation of the UN Resolutions has also deepened conflicts and compounded sufferings of peoples, the Pakistan Ambassador said. This is particularly true in cases of Resolutions regarding the right to self-determination of the people struggling under colonial domination and foreign occupation. Right to self-determination of such people is a fundamental human right, guaranteed by the Charter, recognised under the relevant human rights conventions and upheld by our leaders at the 2005 World Summit. Negation of the right to self-determination ignites conflict and threatens peace and security, he said. Unfortunately, South Asia and Middle East are the direct witness of such consequences, Ambassador Haroon added.
