Indian Ambassador TS Tirumurti
As soon as India took over as the President of the United Nations Security Council, India has made the world aware of its tough stand on Jammu and Kashmir. TS Tirumurti, India’s Permanent Representative to the United Nations and President of the Security Council for the month of August, reminded a Pakistani journalist of Pakistan Occupied Kashmir (PoK) when the issue of Kashmir was raised by him and stopped speaking. Tirumurti said that to change the status of PoK, Pakistan will have to remove its illegal occupation from it.
Indian Ambassador TS Tirumurti, who became the President of the United Nations Security Council in August, has once again made it clear that Jammu and Kashmir is an integral and inseparable part of India. He also said that if anyone’s position needs to be changed, it is related to the evacuation of Pakistan Occupied Kashmir (PoK). At the same time, for the month of August, the President of the Security Council TS Tirumurti said that India wants normal neighborly relations (India-Pakistan) with Pakistan. But it is the responsibility of Islamabad to create a conducive environment for this.
Issues should be resolved peacefully between India and Pakistan
India (India), a non-permanent member of the United Nations Security Council for the term 2021-22, has taken over the presidency of this powerful organ of the United Nations for the month of August on a shift basis. Tirumurti briefed reporters at the United Nations Headquarters here on the Security Council’s ‘Program of Work’. He said, I want to make it very clear that India wants normal neighborly relations with Pakistan. Our consistent stand on issues has been that if there are issues between India and Pakistan, they should be resolved bilaterally and peacefully.
Make your words and deeds united
In response to a question asked about Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan, the Permanent Representative of India referred to the Simla Agreement between the two countries, which talks about bilateral discussion and resolving issues. It should be resolved in an environment which is free from terror, enmity and violence, he said. Therefore, for the time being, it is the responsibility of Pakistan to create such an environment, which includes credible steps to not allow the land under its control to be used for cross-border terrorism against India. Tirumurti said that Pakistan should keep its words and deeds one and prove it. That is our stand.
