NEW YORK: Pakistan has strongly protested against the reported move of India to raise a wall on the Line of Control (LoC) between the two nations.
Reacting to the allegations made by Pakistan that India was raising a 197-km-long, 10-meter-high and 135-foot-wide wall on the Line of Control (LoC), Ministry of External Affairs spokesperson Vikas Swarup said that India was aware of the two letters written by Pakistan to the United Nations.
Protesting against India’s move, reported Dunya News, Pakistan’s Permanent Representative to United Nations (UN) Maleeha Lodhi on Thursday filed two correspondences in the UN, expressing severe reservations over India raising a wall on the LoC — a temporary ceasefire line along Jammu and Kashmir.
The wall is likely to be at least 197-km-long, 10-meter-high and 135-foot-wide.
Reiterating her country’s stance, Lodhi made it clear that “the only acceptable solution of the Kashmir conflict to Pakistan is through the UN resolutions and a plebiscite by Kashmiris”.
Quoting the UN resolutions, she said, “No party can alter the current territorial position and despite the resolution barring the move, India is going ahead with the plan to build a massive and illegal wall.”
Lodhi reportedly told Dunya News that tension in the region has risen in the past few months, while India has violated the ceasefire in multiple events of heavy firing.
She said United Nations’ Security Council president has been informed in writing on the violations from the Indian side.
