India objects to Pakistan raising Kashmir issue at UN forum

India has strongly objected to Pakistan raising the Kashmir issue at a UN General Assembly session here, asserting that it is a bilateral matter which should not be brought up in the UN forum.

Minister in Pakistan's permanent mission to the UN Masood Anwar raised the Kashmir issue in his statement to the UN General Assembly session of the committee on information on April 25.

He said Pakistan appreciates the efforts by the UN's department of public information in arranging coverage of events related to the International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian people.

"We would urge you to do the same for the people of Kashmir who continue to suffer under foreign occupation," Anwar said.

As soon as these remarks were made, minister in India's Permanent mission to the UN S Srinivas Prasad interrupted Anwar's speech and strongly raised objections to the mention of Kashmir by the Pakistani delegate.
