During a UN General Assemblys Fourth (Decolonisation) Committees session, the Pakistani delegation did the right thing by vociferously arguing the case of Kashmir. The enraged Indian representative in response could only flog the dead horse by harping on the theme of atoot ang. Indeed the very mention of mantra of 'integral part constitutes an insult to the UN where the resolution accepting Kashmir as a disputed territory had been first presented by the Nehru-led government. The comments by Pakistans Deputy Representative that the decolonisation agenda of the UN could not reach its fulfilment without the settlement of the Kashmir issue deserve attention. The UNs credibility is at stake. Although it gave the right of self-determination to the people in the Valley and urged India to hold a free and impartial plebiscite, it seems to be totally indifferent to the reality that the dispute has become a nuclear flashpoint. The UNSC resolutions must be implemented in letter and in spirit if the world body is to retain respect in eyes of world, specially among the Muslims. On the other hand, it is quite distressing to note that the PPP-led government is eagerly pursuing the expansion of trade ties with India, although it knows that this amounts to a shameful compromise on Kashmir. Federal Minister for Commerce Amin Fahim, who was recently in India to promote trade between the two countries, not only stated that Pakistan had no reservations about granting India the status of Most Favoured Nation but would also provide it with a land route to Afghanistan under the Afghan Transit Trade mechanism. That Pakistan would lose its market to Indian products inside Afghanistan apart from the possibility of Indian products making it to our local markets is only one of the many drawbacks of including India in ATT. The government must refuse to enter into any bilateral economic arrangement without first making New Delhi respect the UNSC resolutions and end brutal occupation of Kashmir. There could be no compromise on this question.
