Official Spokesperson's response to media queries on remarks made by UNGA President about Kashmir of India

Ministry of External Affairs spokesperson Arindam Bagchi

In response to media queries on remarks made by President of the United Nations General Assembly with respect to the Indian Union Territory of Jammu and Kashmir, the Official Spokesperson of Ministry of External Affairs of India on Friday (May 28) said:

"We express our strong opposition to the unwarranted references made with respect to the Indian Union Territory of Jammu and Kashmir by the President of the United Nations General Assembly (PGA) Volkan Bozkir during his recent visit to Pakistan.

His remarks that Pakistan is "duty bound” to raise this issue in the UN more strongly are unacceptable. Nor indeed is there any basis for comparison to other global situations.

When an incumbent President of the UN General Assembly makes misleading and prejudiced remarks, he does great disservice to the office he occupies. The PGA’s behaviour is truly regrettable and surely diminishes his standing on the global platform."
