Geneva: The United Nations Security Council (UNSC) has once again given a strong blow to Pakistan by rejecting the proposal on the Kashmir issue.
The UNSC made it clear that Kashmir is a bilateral issue between India and Pakistan. Four of the five permanent members of the UNSC - US, Britain, France and Russia - stood firm with India on the issue.
"Today's meeting of the UN Security Council was closed. It was informal and not recorded. The meeting was without any result, as almost all countries decided that Jammu and Kashmir is a bilateral issue and it was not worthy of the Council's time and attention," Permanent Representative of India TS Tirumurthy said in a tweet.
Pakistan had demanded a discussion on Kashmir. For the third time since last August, some diplomats wrote letters to the UNSCl. It was like a fixed match on the first anniversary of the abrogation of Article 370, in which China was batting from behind. But the result did not go the way these two countries had hoped.
"They chose the date, but it turned out to be a short-sighted move. Because everyone else came out in support of India. Most of the members felt that resolving it bilaterally And it is not worth coming to the Security Council, and it was a waste of time," Tirumurthy said.
Another Pakistan attempt fails
Imran Khan's 'new' Pakistan is using the United Nations to raise the issue of Jammu and Kashmir, as India has abrogated Article 370 and Article 35A and has removed the special status which the former state used to enjoy under the constitution. The region was also divided into two union territories.
