Eleventh International Kashmir Peace Conference

Kashmir American Council And The Association of Humanitarian Lawyers Proudly Presents

Eleventh International Kashmir Peace Conference

“India-Pakistan Relations: Breaking the Deadlock over Kashmir”

Thursday, July 29th, 2010, from 8.45am – 6.00pm, at the Cannon Caucus Rm # 345 and

Friday, July 30th, 2010, from 9:00am – 5:30pm, at the Rayburn, Gold Room # 2168

The Eleventh International Kashmir Peace Conference will be held on Thursday, July 29th & Friday, 30th, 2010 on Capitol Hill, Washington, D.C. The primary objective of this conference is to explore various possibilities to set a stage for the settlement of the Kashmir dispute. Speakers will represent Kashmir on both sides of the cease-fire Line; from India, Pakistan and include eminent personalities with an interest in this explosive global concern.

The international community upholds the principled position that the future status of Kashmir be ascertained in accordance with the wishes and the aspirations of the Kashmiri people. When the Kashmir dispute was brought before the Security Council in 1948, a commitment to this was evident and remains valid. The rights of self-determination are clearly articulated in the United Nations and no one has the right to coerce or diminish the identity of another.

The urgent goal of resolving the Kashmir dispute cannot be left to the two governments to achieve. Bilateral talks have proven barren for more than 61 years; they have lacked a sense of urgency. It requires the engagement of a multilateral effort with the participation of the Kashmiris themselves.

A durable peace, with the development of harmonious relations for the entire region, will serve the vital interests of Afghanistan, Pakistan, Kashmir and India as well as the international community. With good faith by all concerned parties should work together towards a final settlement of the Kashmir dispute. Nuclear proliferation and rising levels of violence only exacerbate the urgency of the matter.
