UNITED NATIONS: UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres has called for avoiding steps that will escalate tensions between Pakistan and India.
This was stated by UN Secretary-General’s Spokesman, Stephane Dujarric in response to a question from APP at a virtual news briefing in New York.
The spokesman said Pakistani Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi and Secretary-General did have a conversation last week and a letter sent by him had already been circulated to the UN member states.
Pakistan had on June 2 condemned the extra-judicial killing of thirteen Kashmiris in a single day by the Indian occupation forces in Indian occupied Jammu and Kashmir.
Foreign Office Spokesperson Aisha Farooqui had said Pakistan was deeply concerned over unabated extra-judicial killings of Kashmiri youth in fake encounters and so-called “anti-infiltration” operations. “While the international community is pre-occupied with fighting the Covid-19 pandemic, India is busy intensifying its brutalization of the Kashmiri people,” she had said.
The spokesperson had said the fact that 13 Kashmiris were extra-judicially killed in a single day spoke volumes about Indian government’s continuing crimes against humanity. To hide these crimes, the Indian authorities use the oft-repeated, unsubstantiated allegations of “training” and “infiltration” of Kashmiri resistance fighters.
She had said India must realize that its malicious propaganda carries no credibility with the international community. The RSS-BJP combine stands exposed before the world for its illegal and inhuman actions and extremist ‘Hindutva’ agenda.
