Pak raises Kashmir in UN; despite world body clarifying it won’t mediate
Even as the United Nations Secretary General Antonio Guterres very recently ruled out mediation in Kashmir issue untill both parties agree, the Pakistani envoy to the United Nations went ahead and raised the Kashmir issue during a UN Security Council debate on the Middle East.
Maleeha Lodhi made her attempt even if there were no takers for her argument on the issue. She raised the issue during debate on the current volatile situation in the Middle East.
Relations between India and Pakistan have been strained recently following a series of attacks by Pakistan-based terror groups and incidents of ceasefire violations, causing casualties on both sides.
India has always been opposed to any third-party intervention in resolving the Kashmir issue while Pakistan has continuously sought mediation to sort out the differences. >
