Pakistan foreign minister writes to UN officials, seeks reversal of Article 370 revocation

Pakistan’s Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi has written another letter to the top UN officials highlighting the Kashmir issue, the country’s Foreign Office said on Monday.

The minister addressed the letter to the President of the United Nations Security Council and the United Nations Secretary-General, it said.

Qureshi, who has been regularly writing letters to the Security Council President and the UN Secretary-General, in his latest letter urged the Security Council to call upon India to reverse its actions, including those initiated on and after August 5, 2019.

Tensions between India and Pakistan have spiked since New Delhi abrogated Article 370 of the Constitution to revoke the special status of Jammu and Kashmir on August 5, 2019.

India has told the international community that the scrapping of Article 370 was its internal matter. It also advised Pakistan to accept the reality.

In his letter, Qureshi affirmed that Pakistan was prepared to engage constructively, but emphasized that the onus is on India to create an enabling environment for result-oriented engagement, the FO said.
