India Slams Pakistan for Kashmir Reference at UN Security Council Meeting
India has strongly criticized Pakistan for its repeated and baseless mention of Kashmir during a recent Security Council meeting at the United Nations. The rebuke came during the open debate on ‘Maintenance of International Peace and Security: Promoting Sustaining Peace through Common Development,’ chaired by China.
Pakistan’s UN envoy, Munir Akram, raised the issue of Kashmir in his remarks, prompting a swift response from India. R. Madhu Sudan, a Counsellor in India’s Permanent Mission to the UN, dismissed Pakistan’s remarks as unwarranted and habitual, refusing to dignify them with a direct response.
Pakistan has consistently brought up the issue of Jammu and Kashmir at various UN platforms, regardless of the agenda or topic of discussion. However, these efforts have failed to gain any traction or support from the international community.
Tensions between India and Pakistan escalated after India revoked Article 370 of its Constitution, which granted special status to Jammu and Kashmir, on August 5, 2019. Pakistan strongly condemned India’s decision and took actions such as downgrading diplomatic ties and expelling the Indian envoy.
India has consistently emphasized that the revocation of Article 370 was an internal matter and urged Pakistan to accept this reality. India has also called on Pakistan to cease its anti-India propaganda.
