Pakistan has reiterated its demand for independent enquiry into human rights abuses in Kashmir valley from past 90 days.

Pakistan Ambassador to UN Maleeha Lodhi said the world body is obliged to play a role to end the "human rights abuses and facilitate peaceful settlement of Kashmir" while speaking at the UN General Assembly, Radio Pakistan reported.

The radio report said that Lodhi called for the solution of Kashmir through a free and fair plebiscite under UN auspices.

"She welcomed the call by UNHR commission for access to Indian-administered Kashmir," it reported.

"The struggle of the Kashmiri people for self-determination is legitimate and they have the right to receive moral and political support from the global community," it quoted Lodhi as saying.

She reminded the world body of Pakistan's longstanding and unwavering commitment to UN peace keeping which is acknowledged by everyone.
