The Pakistan government has expressed disappointment over the comments made by External Affairs Minister Salman Khurshid on the status of Jammu and Kashmir. In a statement on Monday, a Foreign Office spokesperson said that the Kashmir dispute was the core issue between the two countries that remained unresolved. “It is unfortunate that Indian leadership continues to refer to the State of Jammu and Kashmir as an integral part of India, when the reality is clearly otherwise. As a member of the United Nations, India should not overlook or undermine the numerous U.N. Security Council resolutions on this issue,” the statement said. — Meena Menon
