Difficult to persuade UNSC members to back Chinese request on J&K, says Pakistani Media

AIR
As Pakistan get snubbed at United Nations Security Council, its own media has shown it the mirror. Leading Pakistani newspaper 'Dawn' yesterday commented that UN Security Council's current composition does not seem to favour Islamabad as the Council discusses India's revocation of the special status to Jammu and Kashmir. 

While reporting from UN headquarters, Dawn noted that only China is "openly favouring" Pakistan at UNSC. The remaining four permanent members - Britain, France, Russia and the US - want India and Pakistan to address the Kashmir dispute in a bilateral set-up, said Dawn. The newspaper added that out of 10 non-permanent members who are elected for a two-year term by the UN General Assembly, it will be difficult to persuade them to back the Chinese request.


Meanwhile, another Pak newspaper, the News International noted that though the Pakistan government was going all out to muster global support, the responses and reactions received from the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) and the Muslim nations individually are very weak. The Indian trade and business prowess within the OIC member states is relatively too large to be ignored by its trading partners none of whom is currently paying any heed to Pakistan's pleas.
