  • UN chief Antonio Guterres says it’s completely important for India and Pakistan to significantly talk about their issues
  • “I do believe it is absolutely essential to have a de-escalation of the situation, namely in the Line of Control,” says the UN chief
  • Guterres says there isn’t a navy answer to the Kashmir dispute

UNITED NATIONS: UN Secretary-Common Antonio Guterres referred to as on nuclear-armed India and Pakistan to “come together and seriously discuss their problems” saying a navy confrontation can be “a disaster of unmitigated proportions” on Thursday.

Replying to a query from state-run APP at his first press convention in 2021, the UN chief warned there was no “military solution” to the decades-old Kashmir dispute.

“It is clear when seeing Pakistan and India, any military confrontation between the two would be a disaster of unmitigated proportions for both countries and for the whole world,” he warned.

“I do believe that is absolutely essential to have a de-escalation of the situation, namely in the Line of Control” within the disputed Kashmir area, Guterres mentioned, including, “I think it’s absolutely essential for the two countries to be able to come together and seriously discuss their problems.”

He added he thinks it’s important that human rights are totally revered in all territories talked about, referring to the query through which the correspondent highlighted the persevering with rights abuses in Indian occupied Kashmir.

He mentioned he stood by his assertion of August 8, 2019, which referred to as for the decision of the Kashmir dispute primarily based on UN resolutions and the UN Constitution.

“Now, things have not moved in the right direction, our good offices are always available, and we will insist within it on finding peaceful solutions for problems that have no military solution.”
