Author: Desk August 17, 2019
Pakistan’s attempts at cornering India on Kashmir issue at the UNSC failed miserably on Friday when most of the permanent members backed India.
After the UNSC closed door meeting ended, India’s Permanent Representative to the United Nations, Syed Akbaruddin said that India’s position was and still remains that matters related to Article 370 are an internal matter of India and these have no external ramifications and that the recent decisions are intended for good governance.
He also emphasised that, since the change is internal to India, they have not made any difference to India’s external orientation while adding that India remains committed to ensure that the situation in Jammu and Kashmir remains calm & peaceful.
Akbaruddin said India is committed to gradually removing all restrictions in Kashmir.
