“For just about 75 years, the Kashmiris have generally expected Pakistan’s vigorous help for their entitlement to settle on the situation with their globally questioned country uninhibitedly. There is an agonizing acknowledgment, particularly since August 2019, that Pakistan’s expressed strategy of help for the battle and regional respectability of Kashmir inside the UN Charter and pertinent UNSC goals has changed.”
