United Nations (UN) Secretary-General Antonio Guterres’s spokesman Stephane Dujarric at a virtual news briefing in New York said Antonio stands for avoiding steps that would escalate tensions between India and Pakistan.
He said in response to a question from APP that “The secretary-general’s basic message has always been for all and every party to avoid anything that would escalate tensions.”
While briefing the media the spokesman was questioned about Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi’s recent communications to the UN chief followed by a phone call apprising him of the deteriorating situation in Indian occupied Kashmir, the series of serious LoC violations by India, and its other actions that have heightened tension between the two countries.
Dujarric said Pakistani foreign minister and the secretary-general did have a conversation last week and a letter sent by him has already been circulated to the UN member states.
