The Kashmir issue is being discussed at the UN Security Council long after India’s special status for Kashmir was changed. A meeting to be convened in this regard is being held today, Friday evening at seven o’clock. However, many questions are currently in circulation, and the answers will be very important.
In this regard, when ‘Urdu News’ asked former diplomat Ali Sarwar Naqvi whether Pakistan’s homework was complete, was there any hurry? He said that it was not hasty to call the meeting, but it was necessary at that time.
Regarding the nature of the meeting, Ali Sarwar Naqvi said that it would be a consultative meeting that is called before any formal meeting. It is attended by representatives from 15 countries and is held in a closed room. It will also be reported to the United Nations Commission on India and Pakistan and observer groups looking at the Kashmir issue and a formal meeting will be decided. If that meeting is convened then a resolution can be reached, both countries can be instructed on different steps, the Viceroy can be appointed.
In response to the same question, former diplomat Zafar Hilali told ‘Urdu News’ that a formal meeting could be called only after the support of nine of the 15 members who attended the consultation meeting.
Zafar Hilali is not optimistic about this meeting. He said that if China and Russia are with Pakistan, then America, France and others are on the other side.
When he was asked if the Kashmir issue was not resolved even after this meeting, then what would be the way? So Zafar Hilali said that whether we want or not, but then inevitably the situation will either go proxy or go straight to war.
What if it was decided not to call a formal meeting at a consultation meeting? In reply to this, Ali Sarwar Naqvi said that even if this happens, it will go in favor of Pakistan as it will bring about a lot of Kashmir issue in the world.
Asked about Pakistan’s support internationally, he said that the support of some non-permanent members besides China and Russia is with Pakistan, but the conduct of France, the United States, and the UK looks different.
The question is that if a formal meeting is called after consultation and there is some hope of a solution to the problem if one of the mentioned countries uses veto power, will everything go wrong? Responding to this, he said that even if it looks like the extent of the rolls, the benefit of such a situation would still reach the Pakistani position as the matter would become more and more controversial around the world. Pakistan will continue to speak on its stand so this matter will remain in the news which will benefit Pakistan in the future.
The problem is Kashmir and the United Nations
The problem of Kashmir is as old as the establishment of Pakistan and India. The problem of Kashmir was present when the two countries were liberated in 1947. The first conflict was fought on December 1947, on which Indian Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru called it the United Nations. Was taken to the Security Council and a United Nations Commission on India and Pakistan was formed.
In April 1948, the Security Council passed a resolution in which both countries were instructed to fire and were asked to withdraw troops as well as to withdraw.
It took several months for the ceasefire to be completed, and an agreement was signed on January 1, 1949, but the two countries did not agree on the withdrawal of troops.
In December 1949, the UN was again contacted by the two countries and asked to withdraw troops.
Due to the Kashmir problem, the friendly relations between the two countries could not flourish and both sides continued to exercise their rights over Kashmir, during which the relations between the two countries were strained and many countries, including Pakistan, went to UN resolutions. But the UN continued to call for support and at various times the UN was trying to resolve the issue.
In 1951 another UN resolution was adopted, in the light of which a UN military observer group was established for the two countries.
Similarly, after the 1971 war, the two countries signed a Shimla Agreement in 1972 and the UN Observer Group is also working on the Line of Control.
However, Pakistan’s Foreign Office has been of the view that the observer group is not allowed to work on the Line of Control on behalf of India while it is fully mobilized towards Pakistan, the demand from Pakistan has also come to the fore. The observer group should also be allowed to work freely and report on India.
In addition, according to Radio Pakistan, the last time the Security Council spoke in 1998, Pakistan had conducted nuclear tests in response to India’s blasts, which was discussed in the UN Resolution 1172, in which Kashmir was also overlooked.
