India Rejects UN Chief's Offer to Mediate on Kashmir Issue

MEA spokesperson Raveesh Kumar.

India on Sunday, 16 February, flatly rejected UN chief Antonio Guterres's offer of mediation on Kashmir and said the real issue needed to addressed is to vacate territories "illegally and forcibly" occupied by Pakistan.

The assertion by the Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) came after Guterres said in Islamabad that he was concerned over the situation in Kashmir, and that he was ready to mediate between India and Pakistan to resolve the long pending issue.

MEA spokesperson Raveesh Kumar said Jammu and Kashmir is and will continue to be an integral part of India and hoped that the UN secretary general would press Pakistan to take credible and irreversible action to stop cross-border terrorism against India.
