In a joint statement issued by Barrister A Majid Tramboo, Chairman of International Commission for Human Rights (ICHR) and Professor Nazir Ahmad Shawl, Chairman of International Chamber for Peace and Conciliation (ICPC) have stated that over the past few months there has been extensive consultation and exchange of views with the Kashmiri leadership and civil society concerning the institutional unification at the international level for the realization of the Kashmiris right to self determination and promotion and protection of their human rights.  Both the leaders have expressed their satisfaction and gratitude for the constructive and encouraging counsel that they received.

With a view to formulate a unified strategy, forward planning and resources, it has been resolved to merge the existing structures both at EU and UK to establish a unified international secretariat at London with a view to continue the work at the United Nations (UN), European Union (EU), Organisation of Islamic Co-operation (OIC), and with the Non-governmental Organisations (NGOs) and civil society.

Barrister Tramboo and Prof. Shawl have emphasized that this change of strategy will not slow down their meaningful work on the Kashmir cause but in fact it is likely to lead to wider lobbying, communication and understanding on the Kashmir issue.   

In the meantime, Chairman of All Party Group for Kashmir in the European Parliament (APGK), James Elles (MEP) held a get together of MEPs and other invited guests in recognition of the work that has been accomplished by APGK and ICHR together at the European Union in particular at the European Parliament.  Mr. Elles while recognising the assistance Barrister Tramboo extended to the APGK for highlighting the Kashmir issue  in the EP stated that together six Global Discourses and eight Kashmir EU Weeks were organised that resulted in unanimously passing various resolutions and reports by the Parliament. Similar views were expressed by other MEPs including Jean Lambert (MEP), Chairperson of the South Asia Delegation, Chris Davies (MEP) and Richard Ashworth (MEP).  Barrister Tramboo commended the work of APGK over the years, articulating that Mr Elles championed the cause of Kashmir within the European Union.  He appealed and hoped that APGK will continue its dedicated work on Kashmir in days to come including in the new Parliament in 2014.
