UNSC issues a strong statement after Pakistan sponsored terrorist attack in Pulwama, names JeM

After the Pulwama attack, Pakistan has been in panic mode expecting a military retaliation from India. Yesterday, several people from Pakistan got spooked after they heard a sonic boom from their own PAF jets in civilian areas of Sialkot.

The Pakistan sponsored Pulwama terror attack in Kashmir, which led 40 soldiers dead, has evoked strong reactions from the world community. The one institution which was conspicuous in its silence so far was the United Nations Security Council. However, today the UNSC issued a strongly worded statement against the heinous act of terrorism against India.

Statement issued by UNSC

The UNSC in its statement condemned the terror attack that claimed the lives of 40 Indian soldiers and mentioned Jaish-e-Mohammad by name, for taking responsibility for the attack.

In the statement, UNSC reiterated that terrorism in all its forms is the greatest threat to international peace and that perpetrators, organisers and financiers of terrorism should be brought to justice.

The UNSC also ‘urged all states’ in accordance with their obligation under International Law and relevant security council resolutions to ‘cooperate actively with the Government of India and all other relevant authorities in this regard’.

India’s Ambassador and Permanent Representative to the United Nations, Syed Akbaruddin tweeted that this is a ‘statement with many firsts’ and hence, it took more time than expected. He tweeted that the UNSC statement was ‘better late than never’.

The UNSC has issued a strong statement and indirectly, seems to have pulled up Pakistan for sponsoring terrorism and China for protecting Mazhoor Azhar. However, what remains to be seen if any action is taken in this regard by the two neighbouring states of India.

After the Pulwama attack, Pakistan has been in panic mode expecting a military retaliation from India. Yesterday, several people from Pakistan got spooked after they heard a sonic boom from their own PAF jets in civilian areas of Sialkot. They took to Twitter to wonder if India had attacked Pakistan. India has been trying to alienate Pakistan diplomatically in the world community. After the Pulwama terror attack, India took a number of steps to ensure it hits Pakistan diplomatically and financially. Union Minister Nitin Gadkari said yesterday that India would ensure that no water under Indus Water Treaty that is meant to be used by India would go to Pakistan.

Following the Pulwama attack, PM Modi chaired a CCS meet with top security officials and his cabinet. The meet concluded with offering the Armed forces a free rein to exact the revenge at a place and timing of their choice. It also agreed upon mounting an insurmountable diplomatic offence by speaking to representatives of 25 countries, the ambassadors of Arab nations and withdrawing the Most Preferred Nation (MFN) status from Pakistan.
