China-backed Pakistan bid to raise Kashmir issue at UN fails

New York/IBNS: Pakistan's attempt to raise the Jammu and Kashmir issue at the United Nations failed once again on Wednesday, media reports said.

Pakistan's efforts to raise Jammu and Kashmir at the UN Security Council through China crumbled once again on Wednesday as most members of the top world body said it was not the place to discuss the issue, sources told NDTV on Thursday.

"Pakistan's practice of using false pretences to distract from addressing the malaise that afflicts it, has run its course today," India's Permanent Representative to the UN Syed Akbaruddin told NDTV.

He also tweeted: "Today @UN ...our flag is flying high. Those that launched a “False Flag” effort got a stinging response from our many friends."

The meeting was called after, Pakistan's all-weather friend China pushed for it. A similar meeting was held in August after the government scrapped Article 370 which granted special status to Jammu and Kashmir and bifurcated the state into two union territories.

But, that meeting failed to draw an adverse reaction from the participating UNSC members- France, Russia, the US and the UK, except China which had called it.

Another meeting, which was scheduled for December, did not take place.

So far, the four countries have maintained that scrapping of Article 370 is India's internal matter.

Except China, the four members of the UNSC have also supported India's stand that the disputes between India and Pakistan are the bilateral issues of the two nations.
