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.
Akbaruddinwhile speaking at the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) meeting, furtherstressed that the recent decisions are intended to ensure that good governanceis promoted; socie-economic development is enhanced for people in the region. "Weare committed to gradually removing all restrictions," he also added.
In anindirect attack to Pakistan, Akbaruddin said, "There were some who tried toproject an alarmist approach to the situation which is far from the groundrealities. Of particular concern is that one state is using terminology of'jihad' against and promoting violence in India including by their leaders."
