Interference in Kashmir when both team ask: UN

By Abdul Nisar

Ban ki Moon
New Delhi, Oct 7: United Nations Secretary General Ban-ki Moon told that UN will not interfere in Kashmir issue until India and Pakistan ask the world body to step in.

"As far as this role of good offices is concerned, the United Nations normally takes that initiative when requested by both parties concerned," said Ban to journalists during his monthly briefing at the UN Headquarters.

"India and Pakistan, they are neighbouring countries, important nations in that region. Peace and security would have important implications. I regret the latest loss of life. I have been calling for an immediate end to violence and urge calm and restraint by all concerned. That is the position of the United Nations at this time," he added.

Kashmir valley is facing unrest since Jun 2010. More than 100 people died in the clashes between stone-pelters and security forces. UN Secretary's remarks came after Indian External Affairs Minister SM Krishna accused Pakistan as the sponsor of terrorism in Kashmir.
