India slams Pakistan at UN for raising Kashmir issue repeatedly

  • India slams Pakistan at UN for raising Kashmir issue repeatedly

India once again thrashed Pakistan at the United Nations for repeatedly raising the Kashmir issue on platforms where it has not been part of the agenda. Srinivas Prasad, minister at the Permanent Mission of India to the UN, said “India rejects the efforts of the delegation of Pakistan to bring issues which have never been on the agenda of this Committee ever in its history.”

The issue was raised by Pakistan during a debate on decolonisation in the fourth committee of the UN General Assembly. The Indian diplomat said India considered it a diversion from the agenda and as a distraction not worthy of a response.

Srinivas Prasad said “Even as all those who have taken the floor have focused on issues of Non Self-Governing Territories, a solitary member State, as usual, has ventured to plough a lonely furrow contrary to the onward march of history.”

India’s response came after Maleeha Lodhi, Pakistan’s Permanent Representative to the UN, said that the de-colonisation agenda of the UN will remain incomplete without resolution of the long festering dispute of Jammu and Kashmir.
