ISLAMABAD - Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi on Wednesday addressed another letter to the President of the UN Security Council underscoring the continuation of troubling developments including the dire humanitarian situation as a result of total lockdown in Indian occupied Jammu & Kashmir and the attendant risks to peace and security in South Asia.

Referring to the Security Council meeting of August 16, 2019, the Foreign Minister has inter alia emphasized the importance of immediate lifting of India’s indefensible lockdown of the entire Kashmiri population for three weeks and reiterated Pakistan’s concerns over India staging another “false flag” operation to divert world’s attention from its illegal and unilateral actions of 5 August 2019. India’s irresponsible and belligerent rhetoric on the nuclear issue has also been highlighted.

The foreign minister further suggested to the Security Council for doubling the number of United Nations Military Observer Group in India and Pakistan (UNMOGIP) and persuading India to allow them to patrol on its side of the LoC as well.
