United Nations: Ever since the Indian Parliament neutralized Article 370 and Article 35A in Jammu and Kashmir, Pakistan has been continuously shouting 'Kashmir-Kashmir …' on international forums. Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan had sent a letter to the UN Security Council (UNSC) on the issue of Kashmir with the intention of intimidating India, but here too he has to face it. UNSC President Joanna Roneka has refused to comment on the letter of Pakistan Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi sent to the Secretary General Antonio Guterres on the condition of Kashmir.
When reporters asked her about this during a media briefing organized by seven western countries on Thursday, she left from there saying 'no'. A letter written by Qureshi on August 1 was distributed to members of the Security Council on Thursday and issued by the United Nations.
No media has responded to Kashmir issue
Ronca was present at the media briefing, where Belgian Deputy Permanent Representative Karen Van Wlirberg read a statement in support of Georgia and criticized Russia for tense the border situation there. No one answered the media's questions and left. Maliha Lodhi, the permanent representative of Pakistan, met Roneka on Wednesday. Lodhi is on his campaign to defend Kashmir.

Qureshi expressed concern in his letter that 'there are widespread concerns that India is preparing the ground to abolish Article 35-A from its constitution as a first step, and Article 370 after that'. He also urged Guterres to appoint a special representative for Kashmir and send a fact-finding party to the area.
On the Qureshi request, the spokesperson of Gutres said – 'We are studying'
When asked about Qureshi's request, Guterres spokesman Stephan Duzarik said in his daily briefing on Thursday, "We are studying it." The Secretary-General is closely monitoring the situation. The secretariat is also keeping an eye on the situation, but I have nothing to make any announcement or hint on the issue of a special envoy.
Asked whether Guterres planned to bring the developments in Kashmir to the Security Council or speak anything about it? He said, 'We have no such plan. I have no idea of â€‹â€‹any briefing plan.
Since Guterres and General Assembly President Maria Fernada Espinosa are not at the headquarters, Lodhi met with the Deputy Secretary-General for Political Affairs Rosemary DiCarlo on Thursday. He met Guterres Chief of State Maria Luisa Ribeiro Viotti on Wednesday.
