UNSC India Pakistan:
Foreign Minister S. Jaishankar said during the Presidency of the Security Council: “India will always be a moderate voice, defender of dialogue and supporter of international law.
Neighboring Pakistan was never deterred by its inappropriate antics against India. When India entered the presidency of the United Nations Security Council, there were three messages to the world. But Pakistan, the terrorist haven, did not like this message and started to sing. Cashmere tune backward. In fact, on August 5, 2019, India decided to abolish Article 370 of Jammu and Kashmir and the neighboring country is still making noise.
It was only after Article 370 was repealed that Pakistan attempted to spread anti-Indian propaganda by wandering around the world, but received no help anywhere. Now, on Tuesday, the suspect’s Asian countries of unrelentingly sabotaging any try at constructive and significant dialogue in his country. Pakistani Foreign Ministry spokesman Zahid Hafeez Chaudhry said so when asked about Indian Foreign Minister S. Jaishankar in a tweet about India’s priorities during the Pakistani Security Council presidency.
During the Presidency of the Security Council,
Jaishankar identified three priorities for India, including the voice of restraint, promoting dialogue, and supporting international law. India chairs the United Nations Security Council in August. Jaishankar tweeted on Sunday: “We look forward to working productively with other members when we take over the presidency of the UN Security Council in August.”
In response to Jaishankar’s tweet,
Pakistani Foreign Ministry spokesman Chaudhry said, “India should fix its internal situation before giving a moderation sermon to the world.” He claimed India had relentlessly thwarted any attempt at constructive and meaningful dialogue in its neighborhood. [Howdhury said India’s actions since August 5, 2019, have been “a grave violation of international law, including the United Nations Charter, UN Security Council resolutions and the Fourth Geneva Convention”.]
Significantly, on August 5, 2019,
India repealed Article 370 in Jammu and Kashmir and divided it into two union territories. India had made it clear that the Section 370 matter was a domestic matter only. From the Security Council for the month of August, TS Tirumurti said on Monday that India wanted normal neighborly relations with Pakistan, but it was Islamabad’s responsibility to create a conducive environment for this.
He had said,
Therefore, for the time being, it is Pakistan’s responsibility to create such an environment that includes credible steps to prevent the country under its control from being used for cross-border terrorism against India. Pakistan needs to stick together its words and deeds and show it. This is our position. India’s biennial term as a non-permanent member of the United Nations Security Council began on Jan 1st.
