U.N. chief invokes Shimla Agreement, calls for ‘maximum restraint’ on Kashmir


U.N. chief Antonio Guterres on August 9 urged India and Pakistan to exercise “maximum restraint” and refrain from taking steps that could affect the status of Jammu and Kashmir, as he highlighted the Shimla Agreement which rejects any third-party mediation on the issue.

The Secretary-General’s remarks came after India on August 5 revoked Article 370 to withdraw the special status to Jammu and Kashmir and bifurcated the state into two Union Territories — Jammu and Kashmir and Ladakh.

Pakistan termed the Indian action as “unilateral and illegal”, and said it will take the matter to the U.N. Security Council.
