Muzaffarabad (22 January 2019) Press for Peace (PFP) welcomes the statement of UN Secretary-General about Kashmir. The United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres on Friday hoped that India and Pakistan will engage in a “meaningful dialogue” to resolve their issues. The PFP thanked the UN Secretary-General for his commendable services and efforts to offer the good offices the world body in relation to the dialogue between the two countries. Guterres, earlier said during a press encounter at the UN headquarters in New York that he hoped the two countries will be able to engage in a meaningful dialogue. The UN chief was responding to a question on his repeated urging of dialogue between the two South Asian neighbors.
 In relation to the human rights situation, the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights has produced recently a very detailed report. So, the UN has clearly done its job in that regard, Guterres said.  The Secretary-General Guterres appreciates the continued commitment of opposing sides to finding a negotiated and peaceful solution to the long-standing issues of the world including Kashmir, Nagorno-Karabakh, and other conflicts. 
The PFP particularly welcomed the UNSC's recent steps in asking opposition parties in conflicts around the world to take concrete measures to prepare their populations for peace.
