Responding to the speech by Indian Foreign Minister Sushma Swaraj at UNGA, Foreign Office Spokesman Nafees Zakaria on Monday said if India claims that Kashmir is its ‘integral part’, then “why is it on the Agenda of Security Council?”
Soon after Sushma’s speech, Zakaria tweeted it’s strange that Indian foreign minister “is disowning the UN SC resolutions and that too at the UN”.
Commenting on the mention of Balochistan by Sushma at UN, Zakaria said: “Reference to Balochistan is a continuous admission by India of its involvement in subversive activities in Pakistan”.
He went on to call it “a violation of UN principles and International law”.
Zakaria was of the view that India is trying to divert world attention from its atrocities on defenceless Kashmiris in occupied Kashmir, but it will not succeed in its agenda.
