Pakistan urges United Nation to reject illegal bifurcation of Jammu and Kashmir
Pakistan Foreign Minister Shah wrote a letter to UN Secretary-General and the President of the Security Council urging them to look into the matter.
On October 31, Shah has written another strong letter to UN, attempting to highlight the Kashmir matter to the international community. On the same day, Jammu and Kashmir were officially bifurcated into the two Union Territories – in accordance with the Indian government's announcement on scrapping Article 370 on August 5.
Since the announcement date, India has been saying that it is an internal matter of the country. The nation also mentioned that it has outlived its utility and is irrelevant after the Simla Agreement and the consequent establishment of the Line of Control (LoC).
Qureshi in the letter wrote that the latest communication was the continuation of his letters of August 1, 6, 13 and 26 August, and September 16, where he drew attention the latest developments in Kashmir, including its "illegal bifurcation" and continued escalation on the Line of Control (LoC), the Foreign Office said.
