Indian diplomat TS Tirumurti on Tuesday said Pakistan’s attempts to involve the United Nations to resist the changes brought about in Jammu and Kashmir subsequent to August 5 have “fallen flat” and has not “borne any fruit”, ANI reported. “Attempts by Pakistan to try and internationalise what is essentially a bilateral issue are nothing new,” he said.
Tirumurti, who is India’s permanent representative to the United Nations, said no formal meeting of the Security Council on the India-Pakistan issue has taken place since November 1965. “What came up recently was in a closed-door and completely informally meeting. [It was] Under what is called – any other business – which is not even a recorded discussion,” he told the news agency.
