A day after the United Nations General Assembly president Volkan Bozkir said Pakistan is “duty-bound” to raise the Kashmir issue in the UN more strongly, India responded sharply by calling the statement “unacceptable”. It said his “behaviour is truly regrettable and surely diminishes his standing on the global platform”.
Ministry of External Affairs spokesperson Arindam Bagchi said, “We express our strong opposition to the unwarranted references made with respect to the Indian Union Territory of Jammu and Kashmir by the President of the United Nations General Assembly (PGA) Volkan Bozkir during his recent visit to Pakistan.”
“His remarks that Pakistan is “duty bound” to raise this issue in the UN more strongly are unacceptable. Nor indeed is there any basis for comparison to other global situations,” he said.
