Pakistan calls for strengthening of UNMOGIP after India’s ‘illegal’ actions, LoC breaches

UNITED NATIONS, Sep 11 (APP):Pakistan has urged the United Nations Security Council to explore the possibility of strengthening the UN Military Observer Mission in India and Pakistan (UNMOGIP), which monitors the Line of Control (LoC) in Kashmir, as New Delhi’s revocation of the disputed state’s special status has heightened tensions between the two South Asian neighbours.

“UNMOGIP’s role and importance has increased dramatically since India’s illegal de facto annexation of occupied Jammu and Kashmir on 5 August, in flagrant violation of multiple Security Council resolutions,” Ambassador Maleeha Lodhi told the 15-nation Council.
