Islamabad:Pakistan’s Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi has written to the United Nations, warning the world body of what he says are actions by New Delhi to position missile launchers in Kashmir, according to a statement released by Pakistan’s foreign ministry on Thursday.
In the statement, Qureshi is said to have told the UN that he fears India is planning to launch an attack on Pakistan to divert international attention from human rights violations in Kashmir.
These are “Indian actions that continue to escalate tensions in an already tense environment in South Asia”, Qureshi said in his letter, demanding the UN respond to the purported moves by India.
The Pakistani minister did not offer evidence to support his claim of missiles being placed in the disputed Himalayan region.
There was no immediate comment from India.
