India on Friday slammed Pakistan at the UN headquarters over the Kashmir issue and said that matter related to Article 370 of Indian Constitution is entirely an internal matter of India. “Our national position was and remains that matter related to Article 370 of the Indian Constitution is entirely an internal matter of India,” said India’s Permanent Representative to the UN Syed Akbaruddin.
Akbaruddin while speaking at the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) meeting, further stressed that the recent decisions are intended to ensure that good governance is promoted; socie-economic development is enhanced for people in the region. “We are committed to gradually removing all restrictions,” he also added.
In an indirect attack to Pakistan, Akbaruddin said, “There were some who tried to project an alarmist approach to the situation which is far from the ground realities. Of particular concern is that one state is using terminology of ‘jihad’ against and promoting violence in India including by their leaders.”
