Stop terror to start talks: India to Pakistan after UNSC meet

DD News

Briefing the media following theconclusion of the informal meeting requested by China and Pakistan, SyedAkbaruddin said India's position was and remains that matters related toArticle 370 of the Constitution are entirely an internal matter of India andthese have no external ramifications.

Syed Akbaruddin also said that India is committed to ensure the situationremains calm and peaceful.

Indian envoy to the UN without naming Pakistan, has said there are some who aretrying to project an "alarmist approach" to the situation in Kashmir,which is far from the ground realities. Akbaruddin said  one state isusing the terminology of 'jihad' against and promoting violence in Indiaincluding by their leaders. 

Slamming Pakistan for interfering in the internal matters of India, SyedAkbaruddin asserted that there are normal diplomatic ways when countries dealwith each other. "That is the way to do it. But using terror to thrive andpush your goals is not the way that normal states behave. No democracy willacknowledge or accept talks when terror thrives. Stop terror, starttalks. 

India has categorically told the international community that its move to scrapArticle 370 of the Constitution revoking the special status to Jammu andKashmir was an internal matter and has also advised Pakistan to accept the reality.

He also said that the recent decisions taken by the Govt of India and ourlegislative bodies are intended to ensure that good governance is promoted,social-economic development is enhanced for our people in Jammu and Kashmir andLadakh.
