United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres listens a journalist's question during a joint press conference with Pakistan's Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi (unseen) at the Foreign Ministry in Islamabad on February 16, 2020. (AFP) United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres repeated calls on Sunday for de-escalation and diplomacy in the resolution of Kashmir dispute between Pakistan and India, saying "UN Security Council resolutions [should] be implemented", humans rights "respected", and "continental freedoms" allowed in the Himalayan region. "It is clear that we have taken a position about the need for Security Council resolutions to be implemented and for effective de-escalation and dialogue linked to that, with another very important condition which is full respect for humans rights and continental freedoms in Jammu & Kashmir," Guterres said. The UN chief arrived in Islamabad earlier on Sunday, for a four-day diplomatic visit to Pakistan. During a news conference with Pakistan's Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi he called for "full freedom of movement" of UN's military observer group (UNMOGP) on both sides of the region divided by a highly militarised de facto border, Line of Control. "In relation to the ceasefire, I visited UNMOGP. We believe that UNMOGP should have full freedom of movement. It has on the Pakistani side, we hope that this will also be achieved on the other side. We will be strengthening its equipment capacity in order to better be able to implement its mandate." Guterres said he has always been advocating the need for an "enhanced dialogue" between India and Pakistan and for that he offered his good office more than once. The Indian foreign affairs ministry immediately rejected Guterres' mediation offer on Kashmir, the reported. HR reports on Kashmir hailed Recalling the UN Human Rights Commission reports on Kashmir, he said the two reports played "a very important role in clarifying the situation" in Indian-administered Kashmir. "So our strong commitment is clear, human rights must be respected everywhere in the world, but also there," he added. The UN chief remarks came some seven months into a stringent lockdown on the Indian-administered Kashmir, a move widely decried by human rights groups as well as the global Islamic community. Control of the Himalayan province is split between India and Pakistan. Both countries claim it in its entirety, and they have fought two of their three wars over the territory. Since 1989, a full-blown armed rebellion has raged in the Indian-administered portion seeking a united Kashmir — either under Pakistani rule or independent of both countries. India accuses Pakistan of training and arming the rebels, a charge Islamabad denies. Pakistan says it will continue backing Kashmiris' right to self-determination according to several UN resolutions. Around 100,000 people have been killed in the uprising and an Indian military crackdown. Pakistani Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi meanwhile highlighted his government's concerns over New Delhi's actions in Indian-controlled Kashmir and its decision to unilaterally annex the territory. "We feel that, collectively, we have to agree on a road map of repatriation, which is time-bound, which is supported by the international community and is well resourced", he said.

US needs Europe to tackle the rise of China, NATO chief saysNATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg told CNBC that if the U.S. was concerned about the rise of China then it was 'even more important to maintain NATO to keep your friends and allies close.' I think the Coronavirus has done that for them in regards to Chinese business. I hit 10 shots in a game to 11, missing the 6th shot. Why should I even consider NA. Что-то я не пойму НАТО. Буквально на днях они успешно боролись с Россией, а сегодня уже с Китаем? А что Россия, снова её победили?

Kashmir, in Lockdown Limbo, Bristles at Delhi’s Political SolutionWhile India’s central government says local elections offer a solution in Kashmir , local politicians—those who aren’t in government detention—say New Delhi’s security lockdown on the region will backfire. مردم کشمیر باید اداره منطقه شان را خودشان کنترل کنند هند و پاکستان حق ندارند در سرنوشت مردم کشمیر دخالت کنند Why do you call yourself a news outlet as instead of reporting facts you post biased opinions. Who’s gonna show the other side of things(like no major incidents in past 6 months)? And BTW if you continue this, Rupert Murdoch’s India businesses will be in trouble(I’m an insider). This is so pathetic and inhumane act of UN of deliberately ignoring the aggression, violent behavior and oppression on innocent people of Kashmir by Indian army
