Pakistan’s attempts to get the support of world body, the United Nations on the issue of Indian surgical strikes on terror pads in PoK have failed. Neither the UN Chief Ban Ki Moon nor any of the 15-member security council. The meeting of Pakistan’s ambassador Maleeha Lodhi with the chairman of the Security Council Mr Gerard van Bohemen and complained against India and sought a discussion over it but he he has reportedly turned down the request.
India’s Permanent Representative to the UN Ambassador Syed Akbaruddin stated at the UN that while Pakistan has reached out to the UN Chief and the 15-nation Council over the issues of the surgical strike and Kashmir, it’s call for intervention by the world body has not found any resonance as there was no further discussion on the matter, according to a report by PTI.
“Yesterday there was some action. You are also aware of the reaction,” Akbaruddin said
Akbaruddin dismissed remarks made by Secretary General Ban Ki-moon’s spokesperson Stephane Dujarric that the UN Military Observer Group in India and Pakistan (UNMOGIP) “has not directly observed any firing across the LoC related to the latest incidents”, a reference to the surgical strikes conducted by India on September 29 targeting terror launch pads in Pakistan-occupied Kashmir.
“I have nothing to say because what (Dujarric) said was ‘directly observed’. It’s a call that they have to take. I cannot place myself in their boots and directly observe something,” the Indian envoy said when asked to comment on Dujarric’s remarks.
