India at UNSC: India lambasted Pakistan on Thursday for raking up the Jammu and Kashmir issue during a debate at the ongoing meet of member nations of the United Nations Security Council.
India's Permanent Mission to the UN, Pratik Mathur, said "As we meet today to discuss UNSC reforms, a representative of Pakistan has yet again made unwarranted references to Jammu and Kashmir. Jammu and Kashmir remains an integral and inalienable part of India irrespective of what Pakistan's representative believes."
He further added, "Pakistan's desperate attempts to peddle falsehoods and a bad habit of abusing the sanctity of multilateral forums deserves collective contempt and perhaps sympathies as well."
India's befitting response to Pakistan's false claims came during a key UN General Assembly meeting on the United Nations Security Council.
Earlier, India's Permanent Representative to the UN, Ambassador Ruchira Kamboj delivered the G4 Statement at the UNGA on equitable representation of the UN Security Council.
"Today I delivered the G4 Statement at the UNGA on equitable representation of the UN Security Council. The longer reform is stalled, the greater the deficit in representation which is an inescapable precondition for Security Council legitimacy and effectiveness," Kamboj tweeted on Thursday.
Speaking on behalf of the G4 countries - Brazil, Germany, Japan and India, she said, "The longer the Security Council reform is stalled, the greater its deficit in representation. And representation is an inescapable precondition for its legitimacy and effectiveness."
India's Permanent Representative stressed it is high time to bring the Security Council in line with its Charter responsibility to act on behalf of the entire Membership.
"This will not be achieved without enhancing the membership in both categories. Only this will enable the Council to effectively manage today's global conflicts and increasingly complex and interconnected global challenges it faces today," she added.
