NEW YORK: Foreign Secretary Aizaz Ahmed Chaudhry Monday said that the reaction to Indian atrocities will keep surfacing in Indian held Kashmir.

Briefing newsmen here after PM Nawaz Sharif's meetings with world leaders and calls for intervention to stop human rights abuses in IHK, Chaudhry said India cannot contain the momentum in Kashmir and that incendiary statements by the Indian leadership were threatening regional peace.

Speaking with regard to Nawaz-Kerry meeting, the foreign secretary said the prime minister had apprised Kerry of human rights violations in Indian held Kashmir. He said the meeting also discussed other affairs including the situation in Afghanistan and Pakistan's energy needs.

Secretary Kerry recognised Pakistan's efforts in rooting out terrorism from the region, he added.

"Pakistan has always wished and strived for the establishment of peace, yet its leadership and the masses know well how to defend their country," said Chaudhry, adding that India instead of leveling allegations against Pakistan, India should focus on resolving the longstanding Kashmir dispute.

Meanwhile, Pakistan's permanent representative to the United Nations (UN) Maleeha Lodhi said that Pakistan would not take any pressure into account over the Kashmir issue. "We will take up the issue of Indian atrocities in IHK at every forum," she asserted.
