Meeting organised by the JKLF on Kashmir

Resolution on Kashmir

This meeting, held in the House of Lords on May 8th 2007 on ‘Kashmir, the Way Forward’, under the chairmanship of Lord Avebury

1. Welcomes the improvement of relations between India and Pakistan, but demands that in any projected agreement between them, no constitutional settlement should be imposed on the people of Kashmir.
2. Urges them to continue with normalization in Kashmir, including the facilitation of unfettered contacts between all communities on both sides of the LoC and the progressive reduction of military forces from the whole of the State.
3. Regrets that the report of the Foreign Affairs Select Committee of the House of Commons does not encourage a more positive role for the UK in promoting a solution of the problem of Kashmir which is acceptable to the people of Kashmir.
