Pak Foreign Minister writes to UNSC Prez, seeks UN help to ‘defuse’ Indo-Pak tension

Islamabad, Feb 23 (IECurrentAffairs) Virtually pressing a panic button Pakistan Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi has written a letter to the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) president, Francisco Antonio Cortorreal and drew attention to the ‘deteriorating security situation’ in the region resulting from the Indian threats of use of ‘force against Pakistan’.

“The situation poses a threat to international peace and security….It is clear that India is making the attempt to present its fallacious assumptions as established facts, seek to cover up its own operational and policy failures, and shift the blame to Pakistan,” Mr Qureshi said in his letter – a soft of copy of which has been made available in Delhi.

Pakistan Foreign Minister further said that he has already ‘apprised’ the UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres of the serious situation and underlined that the United Nations “must step into defuse the current tensions”.

“It is with a sense of urgency that I draw your attention to the deteriorating security situation in our region resulting from Indian belligerence and threats of use of force against Pakistan,” he wrote.

Mr Qureshi further said – “Simultaneously, for domestic political reasons, India has deliberately ratcheted up hostile rhetoric against Pakistan and created a tense environment”.

He also accused that Prime Minister Narendra Modi in several public statements has threatened a “befitting response”.

“Separately, senior members of the Indian Government are threatening to use water as a weapon. The long-standing legal arrangements agreed under the Indus Waters Treaty (IWT) are thus being imperiled,” he wrote.
