Responding to External Affairs minister Sushma Swaraj's advice to Pakistan to abandon its dream of separating Kashmir from India, Islamabad asked New Delhi if Kashmir is integral to India then why it is on UNSC agenda.

"Can Indian EAM explain that if Kashmir is an 'integral part of India, why is it on the Agenda of Security Council',"  Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MoFA) spokesperson Mohammed Nafees Zakaria said on Twitter. 

"Strange that Indian EAM is disowning the UNSC resolution and that too at the UN," Zakaria said in another Tweet.

Sushma Swaraj,in her address at the 71st session of the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA), said that Pakistan "persists in the belief that terror attacks will enable it to obtain the territory it covets. "My firm advice to Pakistan is: Abandon this dream. Let me state unequivocally that Jammu and Kashmir is an integral part of India and will always remain so." 

Sushma Swaraj said that Pakistan "persists in the belief that terror attacks will enable it to obtain the territory it covets. "My firm advice to Pakistan is: Abandon this dream. Let me state unequivocally that Jammu and Kashmir is an integral part of India and will always remain so." 

"My firm advice to Pakistan is: Abandon this dream. Let me state unequivocally that Jammu and Kashmir is an integral part of India and will always remain so."

Her remarks were in response to Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif's speech at the UNGA last week where he raised the Kashmir issue and alleged human rights violations by India in the state.
