Again! Pakistan fails to raise Kashmir issue in UN Council
New Delhi : Pakistan's fresh attempt to raise the Kashmir issue at the UN Security Council under the back support of China failed one more time with the council saying that this is not the right place to discuss the matter, said a report.
India, on the other hand, advised Pakistan to focus on issues which are really important for their development like sheltering terrorists to improve relations with New Delhi.
"Pakistan's practice of using false pretences to distract from addressing the malaise that afflicts it, has run its course today," India's Permanent Representative to the UN Syed Akbaruddin told NDTV.
Earlier, on Wednesday, China made a fresh pitch in the UN Security Council to raise the Kashmir issue under the 'other matters'.
"We once again saw an effort made by one member state of the UN, fail in plain view of all others," Mr Akbaruddin told news agency PTI.
"We are happy that neither alarmist scenario painted by the representatives of Pakistan nor any of the baseless allegations made repeatedly by representatives of Pakistan in the UN fora were found to be credible today," Mr Akbaruddin.
The report mentioned that a top European diplomat said the issue should be resolved bilaterally and it was a "domestic affair".
Coming out of the meeting, Chinese Ambassador Zhang Jun said: "We had a meeting on Jammu and Kashmir. And I'm sure you all know that Foreign Minister of Pakistan wrote letters to the Security Council asking the Security Council to pay attention to the current situation in Jammu and Kashmir."
When asked if the meeting advanced anything, he said: "I am sure the meeting will be helping both parties to understand the risk of further escalation and will encourage them to approach to each other and to have dialogue and to seek means, to seek solutions through dialogue. I think that will be helpful".
This was the third failed attempt by China and Pakistan to rake up the issue in the Security Council.
