Islamabad welcomes UN chief's offer for Pak-India arbitration over Kashmir issue
"It is the UN's responsibility to intervene in the matter and get the issue resolved," FO Spokesman Nafees Zakaria said at a press briefing, adding that the body should play its role in order to get UN resolutions implemented.
The FO spokesman rejected the Indian government's view that ongoing unrest in IHK is an 'internal' matter and strongly condemned the fresh wave of violence and atrocities committed against Kashmiris by Indian security forces.
"India can not call the present situation of IHK an internal matter", Foreign Office (FO) Spokesman Nafees Zakaria further said.
"Jammu and Kashmir is not an internal matter of India, it's a recognised issue under the United Nations," he added. The spokesman also rejected Indian accusations of terrorism against the people of IHK. "Dialogue is the only option to resolve this issue," he said.
