"The agenda of right of people to self determination, however, has been Sought to be misused once again by one delegation, by conflicting it with another situation that does not pertain to the decolonization or foreign domination context.

"this delegation has been making frantic attempts to gain credibility for its territorial greed and has demonstrated no hesitation in sabotaging this important agenda by callously referring to Jammu and Kashmir, which is an integral part of India," first secretary in India permanent mission to the UN paulomi tripathi said Wednesday during the general assembly third committee discussion on "right of peoples to self-determination."

MS tripathi reported, saying the "truth is that the issue of Jammu and Kashmir has never been on the United Nation 'right of peoples to self-determination" agenda."

"A cursory reading of the document contained in A/74/309 make it clear that the agenda of self determination, as envisaged by the UN, does not include Jammu and Kashmir," she said, making a reference to the report of the secretary-General on the universal realization of the right of people to self-determination.

MS tripathi asserted that even the UN security council that "this delegation" as a penchant for invoking  has never framed Jammu and Kashmir as a self determination issue in the UN parlance.

"This committee, therefore, has been cautions against her such attempts of letting this forum being misused for propaganda," she said.

"self determination in the UN contexts refers to the right of people that have been colonized or continue to be under foreign determination. it clearly refers to the peoples of non self governing territories of trust territories," she said.

Further, she said the UN established that the principle of self determination is the vehicle for decolonization, not a justification for secession or undermining territorial integrity of any member state.while substantial progress has been achieved in implementing this agenda, some situation continue to be unresolved.

"In this context, India strongly supports to the right of self determination of Palestinian people," she said.

Ms tripathi voiced concerned that in an interconnected world, social media has emerged a platform for amplifying racial hatred and discriminatory ideas what were otherwise Fringe opinions.

"This trend, if unchecked, can challenge social cohesion. States must intensify efforts to prevent and combat racial hatred and discrimination, taking into consideration the balance between safeguarding freedom of expression and advocacy of hatred leading to racial discrimination and violence," she said,adding the partnerships with private sector and civil society are critical in this context.
