Srinagar: All Parties Hurriyat Conference chairman, Syed Ali Geelani has thanked Pakistan for observing Kashmir Solidarity Day to “highlight the oppression and suppression” against the people of Jammu and Kashmir at the hands of “Indian occupational forces”.

They should activate all its embassies and other human resources to highlight Kashmir issue & human rights violations in an operative method,” Geelani said in his message.
