India Slams Pakistan for ‘Unwarranted Remarks’ After FM Bilawal Bhutto Rakes Up Kashmir at UNSC

India on Friday criticized Pakistan for making “unwarranted statements” on Jammu and Kashmir, saying the comments made by its Foreign Minister Bilawal Bhutto Zardari at the United Nations Security Council are Pavlovian’s response aimed at misusing any forum and topic to promote false and malicious propaganda against New Delhi. . India’s response came after Bilawal raised the issue of Jammu and Kashmir and the repeal of Article 370 and the recent order by the Boundary Demarcation Commission during his remarks in the council debate.

Rajesh Barihar, Counsellor at the Permanent Mission of India to the United Nations said: “The representative of Pakistan made unwarranted remarks, which only symbolize Pavlovian response aiming to misuse any forum and every topic to spread false and malicious propaganda against my country. India has exercised the right of reply in the discussion. Open to the Security Council on the maintenance of international peace and security – conflict and food security “organized by the United States, the President of the Council.

The Union Territories of Jammu, Kashmir and Ladakh have been and always will be an integral and inalienable part of India. This includes the areas under the illegal occupation of Pakistan. Barihar emphasized that no amount of rhetoric and propaganda from any country can deny this fact. The only contribution that Pakistan can make is to stop state-sponsored terrorism. “We will treat them with the contempt they deserve,” Parihar added.

The Pakistani foreign minister, who is on his first visit to the United States, also raised the issue of Kashmir while answering questions during a press conference in New York on Thursday. “As far as the question of our relationship with India is concerned, it is particularly complicated” due to their recent actions in Kashmir – first the August 5, 2019 decision to repeal Article 370 in Jammu and Kashmir as well as the recent decision to demarcate the boundary, he said.

He said that these actions “complicated this matter” and “an attack” on the United Nations, UN Security Council resolutions and the Geneva Convention. “Actions like this make it difficult for us to have a dialogue” with India, Bilawal said. Tensions have been rising between India and Pakistan since New Delhi repealed Article 370 of the constitution to revoke the special status of Jammu and Kashmir on August 5, 2019. India’s decision provoked strong reactions from Pakistan, downgrading diplomatic relations and expelling the Indian envoy.

India categorically informed the international community that repealing Article 370 was its internal affair. India has repeatedly told Pakistan that Jammu and Kashmir “was and will forever be” an integral part of the country. She also advised Pakistan to accept the reality and stop all anti-India propaganda. India also informed Pakistan that it desires to establish normal neighborly relations with Islamabad in an environment free from terrorism, hostility and violence.
