Prof Shawl in letter addresed to UN Secretary General Ban Ki Moon on the omission of Kashmir from the United Nations Secretary General's annual report. said that the report is a disappointment and a reminder that the UN is no longer responsive to the goals and aspirations of the people resolutely struggling for an honourable, durable peace and their long denied right of self-determination. He reminded the world body chief that Kashmir is the oldest unresolved dispute on the UN agenda and it is an obligation of the UN to facilitate a peaceful resolution of the conflict. Being the greatest militarised area and a nuclear flashpoint, Kashmir is a threat to regional security and global peace, he maintained.
