Tramboo, Shawl announce new strategy to work for Kashmir cause
London: In a joint statement issued by Barrister A Majid Tramboo, Chairman of International Council for Human Rights (ICHR) and Professor Nazir Ahmad Shawl, Chairman of International Chamber for Peace and Conciliation (ICPC) have stated that over the past few months there has been extensive consultation and exchange of views with the Kashmiri leadership and civil society concerning the institutional unification at the international level for the realization of the Kashmiris right to self determination and promotion and protection of their human rights. Both the leaders have expressed their satisfaction and gratitude for the constructive and encouraging counsel that they received.
With a view to formulate a unified strategy, forward planning and resources, it has been resolved to merge the existing structures both at EU and UK to establish a unified international secretariat at London with a view to continue the work at the United Nations (UN), European Union (EU), Organisation of Islamic Co-operation (OIC), and with the Non-governmental Organisations (NGOs) and civil society.
Barrister Tramboo and Prof. Shawl have emphasized that this change of strategy will not slow down their meaningful work on the Kashmir cause but in fact it is likely to lead to wider lobbying, communication and understanding on the Kashmir issue.
