New York, Sep 26 (Only Kashmir): Kashmir remains a symbol of the failures of the U.N. system, says Pakistan President Asif Ali Zardari. He made this remark on the disputed region bordering India while addressing the United Nations General Assembly in New York on Tuesday.
Zardari affirmed Pakistan's resolve to support the rights of the people of Jammu and Kashmir, which remains to be the bone of contention between the two countries since their partition in 1947.
"Kashmir remains a symbol of the failures, rather than strengths of the U.N. system. We feel that resolution of these issues can only be arrived in an environment of cooperation," he told the 67th session of the General Assembly on the first day of its annual General Debate.
Zardari linked Pakistan's strides towards democracy and peace to its role at the United Nations which, he said, necessitated reform to better reflect democratic principles.
"The U.N. represents our common aspirations for peace and development," he said. "However, it needs reform. The U.N. system must become more democratic and more accountable. Reform should be based on consensus and democratic principles,"  according to the Pak leader. (OK)
