The United Nations Secretary General, Antonio Guterres has once again suggested dialogue between India and Pakistan to settle the grave crisis stemming from India’s annexation of the disputed Kashmir region.
In his regular media briefing at UN Headquarters in New York, Spokesman of the UN Secretary General, Stephane Dujarric, said that Secretary-General Antonio Guterres is a strong believer in dialogue. The Spokesman said the position of the United Nations on this region is governed by the UN Charter and applicable Security Council resolutions.
He said the UN Secretary General also recalled the 1972 Agreement on bilateral relations between India and Pakistan also known as the Simla Agreement, which states that the final status of Jammu and Kashmir is to be settled by peaceful means, in accordance with the UN Charter.
Earlier, on Aug 16, the Security Council considered the volatile situation in Occupied Kashmir, addressing the issue in a meeting focused solely on the dispute, within the UN body dedicated to resolving matters of international peace and security, for the first time since 1965.
