India welcomes exclusion of J&K from U.N. disputes list


India on Monday welcomed the reported exclusion of Jammu and Kashmir from the list of unresolved international disputes.

“It has been reported that U.N. has dropped Kashmir from the list of unresolved disputed. I think, if this step has been taken, I welcome it,” Minister of State for External Affairs Praneet Kaur told reporters here.

“We have always firmly maintained that Jammu and Kashmir is an integral part of India... This is a very welcome step and we hope that in same way the U.N. addresses our bilateral issues,” she added.

Pakistan's envoy has lodged a protest against the omission of Jammu and Kashmir from a list of disputes under the observation of the U.N. Security Council.

The development has come as a setback to Pakistan which has been asking the world body to intervene on the issue.
