India tells Pakistan why United Nations cannot mediate on Kashmir


United Nations: Pakistan’s new government must not indulge in “polemics” but work to build a South Asian region free of terror and violence, India has said after Pakistan raked up the Kashmir issue at the UN Security Council.

India’s Permanent Representative to the UN Ambassador Syed Akbaruddin’s remarks came during the UNSC debate on Mediation and Settlement of Disputes. “I take this opportunity to remind – Pakistan – the one isolated delegation that made unwarranted references to an integral part of India, that pacific settlement requires pacific intent in thinking and pacific content in action,” Akbaruddin said at the debate on Wednesday.

Pakistan’s Ambassador Maleeha Lodhi raked up the Kashmir issue during the debate, drawing a sharp reaction from Akbaruddin who said Pakistan is “regurgitating a failed approach, which has long been rejected, is neither reflective of pacific intent nor a display of pacific content.”
