“Accidental War” with India possible, warns Pakistan Foreign Minister Qureshi

Islamabad | Pakistan Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi has said that there is possibility of an ‘accidental war’ with New Delhi over the situation in the Valley.

“I believe both Pakistan and India understand the consequences of a conflict.But you cannot rule out the possibility of accidental war due to the constant increase in tension. If things continue like this, then anything can happen”, Qureshi told reporters outside the UNHRC conference.

He also appealed to the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights Michelle Bachelet to visit the ‘disturbed area’.

“She should visit both places and report as objectively as she can so that the world knows what the true… situation is,” he said.

Qureshi ruled out the possibility of bilateral talks to resolve the tensions. “In this environment and with the mindset that we see in New Delhi today, I do not see any room for a bilateral engagement,” he said

He also stated that a third-party intermediary would be beneficial.

Addressing the 42nd session of the UN Human Rights Council on Tuesday, Qureshi said the UNHRC must not remain “indifferent” to the situation in Kashmir after India revoked Jammu and Kashmir’s special status
