‘India Shouldn’t Mistake Restraint for Weakness’: Pakistan Writes to UNSC for Emergency Meet Over J&K


Pakistan has asked the United Nations Security Council to convene an emergency meeting over India’s decision to revoke the special status of Jammu and Kashmir and bifurcate the state, with foreign minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi saying his country would not provoke a conflict but “India should not mistake our restraint for weakness”.

In a letter to the UNSC, Qureshi said: “If India chooses to resort again to the use of force, Pakistan will be obliged to respond, in self defence, with all its capabilities.” He added that “in view of the dangerous implications” Pakistan requested the meeting.

Pakistan had on Saturday said Beijing fully supported it in approaching the UN body over the repeal of Article 370 after Qureshi visited China on Friday and met with his Chinese counterpart Wang Yi and other top officials. Read More
