Pakistan’s Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi asked his countrymen not to live in a “fool’s paradise” as he highlighted that it will not be easy for Islamabad to get the support of the UN Security Council.
He also went on to say that the world Muslim nations would not turn against India’s decision to withdraw Jammu and Kashmir’s special status because they had invested heavily in India.
While addressing media at a rally in Muzaffarabad in Pakistan-occupied Kashmir on Monday, Qureshi said: “You (people) should not in live fool’s paradise. Nobody will be standing there (in the UNSC) with garlands in hands… nobody will be there waiting for you.”
After India revoked Jammu and Kashmir’s special status, Pakistan announced that it will approach the UN Security Council against New Delhi’s decision.
Qureshi’s statement came two days after Russia becomes the first UNSC member to back India’s move on Jammu and Kashmir, saying that the changes in the status are within the framework of the Indian constitution.
The US has also maintained a neutral stand on the issue. China, Pakistan’s all-weather ally had objected to the formation of Ladakh as Union Territory but told India and Pakistan to solve Kashmir through UN resolutions and the Shimla Agreement.
India however have categorically told the international community that its move to scrap the special status to Jammu and Kashmir is an internal matter.
