Qureshi requested the UN Security Council to play its appropriate role and reiterated Pakistan’s proposal to strengthen UNMOGIP’s presence in the region
Islamabad: Foreign Minister of Pakistan Shah Mahmood Qureshi has once again written a letter to the United Nations Secretary-General and the President of the Security Council to raise the Kashmir issue.
Recently in a series of letters, the Foreign Minister Qureshi has consistently updated the United Nations Security Council and the UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres on the situation in Kashmir, the Foreign Office said.
On December 12 in his latest letter, Qureshi apprised the UN Security Council and Secretary-General on Indian actions that continue to grow more tensions in an already tense environment in the South Asia region.
Qureshi requested the UN Security Council to play its appropriate role and reiterated Pakistan’s proposal to strengthen UNMOGIP’s presence in the region.
Meanwhile, India maintains that the UN Military Observer Group in both India and Pakistan (UNMOGIP), established in January 1949, has outlived its utility and is irrelevant after the Simla Agreement and the consequent establishment of the Line of Control (LoC).
Foreign Minister Qureshi also warned that India could launch a false flag attack to distract world attention from Kashmir.
Qureshi asked the Security Council to play its rightful role in avoiding any threats to peace and security in South Asia region as well as bring an immediate end to the suffering of the Kashmiri citizens.
In Qureshi’s earlier letter to the President of the UNSC and the Secretary-General were written on August 1,6,13 and 26, September 16 and October 31.
