    He said that lasting peace in South Asia could not be established unless resolution of the Kashmir dispute.

    Ambassador Manzoor said that the illegal and unilateral actions of the fascist  Modi government of August 5, 2019 to change the internationally recognized “disputed” status of Jammu and Kashmir and to alter the demographic structure of the occupied territory further undermined the prospects of peace and inflamed regional tensions.

    Ambassador Manzoor said the Prime Minister of Pakistan had won the hearts and minds of people of Kashmiries for highlighting the Kashmir issue effectively at the world highest diplomatic forum.

     About one million houses were destroyed and another million damaged while more than a million farm animals have been killed besides four million acres of crops destroyed.

    Dr Mumtaz Malik, former Chief Conservator Wildlife Department praised the Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif for highlighting floods, climate change and global  warming issues effectively in UNGA.
