UNGA President’s remarks on Kashmir unnerve India

The United Nations General Assembly President, Volkan Bozkir’s recent remarks on Jammu and Kashmir has unnerved India.

In a statement, the Indian External Affairs Ministry Spokesperson, Arindam Bagchi said India expresses its “strong opposition” to the comments made by United Nations General Assembly President Volkan Bozkir on Kashmir during his visit to Pakistan.

He said Bozkir’s remarks that “Pakistan is ‘duty bound’ to raise the Kashmir issue at the UN more strongly are unacceptable”, and there is no basis for comparing the situation in Kashmir to other global situations.

The President of the UN General Assembly Volkin Bozkir, during his recent visit to Pakistan, had categorically stated that the status of Jammu and Kashmir must not be changed unless the dispute over the territory is resolved as per the UN Security Council resolutions.

He also equated Palestine with the Kashmir dispute saying that “it is duty of Pakistan to bring this to UN platform more strongly”.
