India slams China for helping Pak forward its Kashmir agenda at UNSC

New Delhi (NVI): India today slammed China for helping Pakistan in trying to raise the Kashmir issue at UNSC and asked Beijing to refrain from such actions in future.

This is yet another instance of Pakistan facing global embarrassment for trying to misuse the UNSC platform to forward its Kashmir agenda.

“The overwhelming majority of the United States Security Council were of the view that UNSC was not the right forum for such issues and this should be discussed bilaterally between India and Pakistan,” Ministry of External Affairs Spokesperson Ravish Kumar said today.

The informal closed-door meeting, therefore, concluded without any outcome, he added.

“In our view highlighted that Pakistan’s desperate measures to peddle baseless allegations and presenting an alarming scenario lacked any credibility,” Kumar said.

He said that if there is any matter between India and Pakistan, it should be discussed bilaterally. “Pakistan can avoid this global embarrassment time and again by putting their energy in something constructive,” he said.

On China’s engagement on the issue, Kumar said that China should seriously reflect on this global consensus, draw the proper lessons and refrain from taking such action in future.
