UN secretary general reiterates Pakistan Should Solve issues with India bilaterally

Last updated on September 21, 2019

“Dialogue between India and Pakistan is a crucial element for the solution of the issue,” Guterres said in a press conference to mark the introduction of entire body’s yearly month-long session, reiterating a previous announcement reminding Pakistan of its dedication to solving differences with India bilaterally under the 1972 Simla Agreement.

The secretary-general also revealed that”human rights have to be fully respected in the land.”

It’d hunted a talk of the UNSC to make its case before the complete body for an open conversation which is telecast live. However, it was allowed, just with China’s aid, a casual debate behind closed doors.

Islamabad has not given up.

“There’s been another effort by one delegation to abuse this forum to spread baseless and deceptive narratives about my nation,” Sandeep Kumar Bayyapu, a diplomat in the permanent mission, taken back. He didn’t mention that delegation was it became apparent he meant when he called it a”however of terrorism.”

Guterres has firmly held to his place” openly and privately,” his spokesman Stéphane Dujarric said last week, mentioning the secretary general’s meeting with Prime Minister Narendra Modi on the sidelines of their G-7 at Biarritz, France, telephone conversation with Pakistan’s foreign minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi and to Permanent Representative Lodi.

Guterres’s message was precisely the same: “he stays anxious about any possible escalation between India and Pakistan over the circumstance. He appeals to both sides to take care of the problem through dialogue. And, as was stated by the High Commissioner for Human Rights recently, the situation in Kashmir could only be solved together with the complete respect of individual rights.”

Despite all these repeated rebuffs, Pakistan has continued its attempts, and Prime Minister Imran Khan is predicted to increase it again in his inaugural address to the UN general assembly on September 27 — precisely the same day as Prime Minister Modi — along with his delegation will increase it all of the customary meetings, think tank occasions and press interaction which lace on the sidelines of their disagreements.

Khan will increase it for sure at his meetings with President Donald Trump — they’re meeting two, based on Pakistan media reports — and seek his intervention, as he did throughout their session in the White House past July.
