Don’t Live in a Fool’s Paradise, UN Not Waiting with Garlands for Us on Kashmir: Foreign Minister Qureshi Tells Pakistanis

Author : Odisha Today Bureau | Posted on: 2019-08-13

Pakistan Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi has asked Pakistanis to not live in a "fool's paradise" by expecting United Nations Security Council to "wait with garlands" to support Islamabad's contentions regarding India's decision to abrogate Kashmir's special status.

 

"Giving vent to emotions is easy and raising objections is much easier. However it is difficult to understand the issue and move forward. They are not waiting for you with garlands in their hands. Any members out of the P-5 nations can be a hurdle... Do not live in the fool paradise," said Qureshi during a press conference aired on PTV on Sunday.

 

Qureshi's comment came a day after Russia becomes the first P-5 member to support India over the abrogation of Article 370. It said all action taken by India was under the constitutional framework.

 

A week after India abrogated Article 370, Pakistan has accepted that it will be difficult for it to find support if it rakes up Kashmir in front of the five permanent members (P5) of the United Nations Security Council, or even before a section of Muslim countries.

 

A rattled Pakistan has initiated a series of decisions, including downgrading bilateral relations with India and suspending bilateral trade, halting of Samjhauta and Thar Express trains from its side and banning of Indian movies from Pakistcinemas.

 

The P5 are China, France, Russia, the United Kingdom, and the United States.

 

The United States has kept its response neutral and not taken sides.

 

However, China has expressed its concerns over the current developments in Jammu and Kashmir.

 

After his trip to China, last week, Qureshi said that Beijing will lend its support to Islamabad in UNSC over Kashmir.


India, on the other hand, has made it is clear that Jammu and Kashmir is an integral part of India and the issue is completely internal.
