"We hope that existing divergences around #Kasmir (Kashmir) will be settled bilaterally by political and diplomatic means only on the basis of Simla Agreement of 1972 and Lahore declaration of 1999, in accordance with UN Charter, relevant UN resolutions and bilateral agreements between India and Pakistan," Polyanskiy also said.

At UNSC meet on Kashmir, here is who backed Pakistan

During the closed door consultation of the United Nations Security Council, Russia expressed hope that India and Pakistan would settle the Kashmir dispute in accordance with the charter and the relevant resolutions of the international organisation and bilateral agreements.

This principle was re-affirmed by the Lahore Declaration which was issued by Atal Bihari Vajpayee and Nawaz Sharif in 1999.
