After sponsoring the Pulwama attack, Pakistan FM Qureshi seeks urgent UN intervention to ‘diffuse tension’ with India

India has rejected any third party intervention in the Kashmir issue and has maintained that all outstanding matters in Indo-Pak ties should be resolved bilaterally. 

Amidst brewing tension between Indian and Pakistan, in the aftermath of the dreadful February 14th Pulwama attack, Pakistan Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi sent a letter to UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres on Monday seeking the UN’s urgent intervention to “defuse tensions” with India. The letter states, “It is with a sense of urgency that I draw your attention to the deteriorating security situation in our region resulting from the threat of use of force against Pakistan by India.”

Fearing unsparing retaliation from India, Pakistan FM urged that the UN must step in to defuse tensions as it is imperative to take steps for de-escalation, maintained Qureshi.

The foreign minister said the Pulwama attack on Indian Central Reserve Police Force was ostensibly and even by Indian accounts carried out by a Kashmiri resident of Indian-occupied Kashmir. Attributing it to Pakistan even before investigations is absurd, Qureshi reiterated.

“For domestic political reasons, India has deliberately ratcheted up its hostile rhetoric against Pakistan,” FM Qureshi said, adding that it has created a tense environment in the region.

Earlier too, Pakistan’s Prime Minister and his men, continuing to animate their denial mode had brazened it out blaming India for the Pulwama terrorist attack.

According to the reports, former interior minister and Chairman Senate Standing Committee on Interior Senator Abdul Rehman Malik has held India responsible for Pulwama attack claiming that RAW had engineered such attacks to not only to divert world attention from the so-called human rights violation in Kashmir but also to sabotage Kulbushan Yadav case.

Qureshi expressed his concern, as India has hinted on abandoning the Indus Water Treaty with Pakistan, asserting that it would be a grievous error.

He furthered that India must be asked to conduct an open and credible investigation in the terror attack.

“You may also consider asking India to refrain from further escalating the situation and enter into dialogue with Pakistan and the Kashmiris to calm the situation down,” he wrote.

Subsequently, reacting to one of the worst attacks in the last 3 decades in Jammu and Kashmir, amidst the diplomatic breakdown between the two countries the Indian High Commissioner to Pakistan Ajay Bisaria had been called to Delhi for consultations on diplomatic action against the country.

India has rejected any third party intervention in the Kashmir issue and has maintained that all outstanding matters in Indo-Pak ties should be resolved bilaterally.

Though Pakistan has time and again asked the UN to intervene in Kashmir, the US has repeatedly reiterated that it is for India and Pakistan to discuss and decide on the pace and scope of their bilateral relationship.

Meanwhile, PM Narendra Modi, respecting and relating to the Indian sentiments had assured vengeance. Union Minister Arun Jaitley too had announced that India has withdrawn the ‘Most Favoured Nation’ tag to Pakistan. He, too, had stated that the perpetrators of the attack will be made to pay for their actions.
