UN chief Antonio Guterres could discuss Kashmir Problem at UNGA: Spokesperson

UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres will be very likely to utilize the chance of talks through the high rise UN General Assembly session which starts here to elevate the Kashmir problem, the UN leader’s spokesperson has stated.

Spokesman for its Secretary-General Stephane Dujarric through the daily press briefing here on Thursday reported that the UN leader has underscored the need for dialogue as the only method to solve the matter and, “within this remedy for the present crisis in Kashmir, to be certain human rights aspects are extremely much dealt with, too.” “…On Kashmir, the Secretary-General… has stated previously, he stays engaged. I believe he’ll also use the chance of talks through the General Assembly to increase it,” Dujarric said, reacting to a query on the scenario in Kashmir.

On Wednesday, Guterres cautioned that”dialog” between India and Pakistan is an”absolute crucial element” for reaching an answer about the Kashmir problem, also stated his good offices could be found should either side request it called for full respect of individual rights.

“Well, our ability is connected to great offices, and excellent offices can only be executed if the parties accept it. And, on the flip side, it relates to advocacy, along with the advocacy was voiced and will be preserved,” Guterres said during his press conference before the UN General Assembly session.

Guterres was requested by a female journalist concerning the situation in Jammu and Kashmir and what would he do to deliver an answer to the Kashmir issue.

“I proceed with a transparent opinion that individual rights have to be fully respected in the land and that I proceed with the obvious view that dialogue between India and Pakistan is a crucial element for the solution of the issue,” he explained.

India has always claimed that Jammu and Kashmir is its integral part and ruled out any third party mediation, such as from the UN or the US, stating it’s a bilateral problem with Pakistan.

The UN Secretary-General has also repeatedly claimed his good offices could be found only if both sides request it.

Pakistan was trying to internationalize the Kashmir problem, but India has claimed that the abrogation of Article 370 has been its”internal matter.”

Prime Minister Narendra Modi can be scheduled to talk on precisely the same day.
