Pakistan once again has a failure on the issue of Jammu and Kashmir.
China, while supporting Pakistan, tried to get the support of other countries in the UN Security Council (UNSC) on the Kashmir issue but the matter did not work. Many members of the council have said that Kashmir is a bilateral issue of India and Pakistan. So, it should be resolved only by the dialogue between the two countries.
Whereas India said that to improve relations with us, it is necessary for Pakistan to focus on the right issues. Actually China on Wednesday (January 15) in New York I tried to take up the Kashmir issue once again in the closed-door UNSC meeting.
According to media reports, this proposal of China was opposed by 10 members with permanent members France, USA, UK, and Russia saying that this matter does not need to be taken up here.
Syed Akbaruddin, India’s permanent representative to the United Nations, has said, “We once again saw that Pakistan tried to raise this issue, which was not supported by anyone.” We are happy that the UN did not consider any unwarranted allegations of Pakistan in this matter worth discussing. ”
China also made two attempts earlier
In a recent United Nations meeting, Pakistan had said that after the abolition of Article 370 from Jammu and Kashmir, the situation there is not normal. Local leaders have been imprisoned in their homes. Many services including the internet are still closed.
In August 2019, China had called a UNSC meeting on this issue even after Article-370 was removed from Jammu and Kashmir and divided into two union territories.
However, China and Pakistan did not get anything from it as the members of the Security Council refused to take action, calling it an internal issue of India.
After this, in December 2019, China had to withdraw its proposal to hold a debate in the UN Security Council on the issue of Kashmir, after the opposition of many members.
Even then, Russia and Britain supported India and said that the Kashmir issue should not be discussed in the forum.
