The United Nations has subbed Pakistan stating that its stance on Kashmir is very clear, unchanged and ‘it has been reiterated’. The statement comes in response to a reply by UN spokesperson Stéphane Dujarric who while confirming Pakistan PM’s call to United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres “
Our position on Kashmir has been reiterated. There is an observer group as mandated by the Security Council. The Prime Minister wanted to speak to the Secretary-General. It’s only normal that the Secretary-General speaks to Heads of Governments and Heads of State and, as I said, I can confirm that the call took place and that the Prime Minister raised the issue of Kashmir. “
Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan has been raking up Kashmir many times. Earlier this week, India slammed Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan to mind his own business. Ministry of external affairs spokesperson Raveesh Kumar said, “I think it will be better if they mind their own business and look at the internal affairs which are in a mess,”
2018 was a bittersweet year for India-Pakistan relations. While both agreed to build Kartarpur corridor, repatriate Hamid Nehal Ansari and Imran Warsi, Pakistan continued to provide support to terror in the region and dragged its feet on 26/11 trial. Pakistan on its part has been facing global isolation but has continued to rake up Kashmir at international forums such as the United Nations.
