Sensing an opportunity to internationalize Kashmir, Pakistan dials UN

Sensing it to be an opportunity to rake up the Kashmir issue in international forum, Pakistan has sought the United Nation’s urgent intervention to defuse tensions with India.

The Pakistan foreign office sent in a request from Islamabad claiming to be nervous about how India will respond.

The situation is post the Pulwama terror attack as India blames Pak-based terror group Jaish-e-Mohammed for the worst strike that left more than forty martyred.

More than 40 paramilitary soldiers were killed in the terror attack on February 14.

The Central Reserve Police Force or CRPF personnel were killed in Jammu and Kashmir’s Pulwama district in a suicide attack claimed by Pakistan-based Jaish-e-Mohammad terror group, which released photos and a video of the suicide bomber after the incident.

The terror attack has resulted in further bilateral tensions with both New Delhi and Islamabad calling back their envoys.

Pakistan Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi sent a letter to UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres on Monday, seeking his help to reduce the tensions between the two countries, Pakistan’s foreign office said.
