New York, ┬áPakistan’s Envoy to United Nations Maleeha Lodhi said that she met UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres and urged him to intervene in the Kashmir issue.

Lodhi on Tuesday tweeted: “In my meeting with UNSG Antonio Guterres I told him that the grave political & humanitarian crisis, which has unfolded after India’s illegal annexation of occupied Jammu & Kashmir last month, poses a threat to international peace and security.”

She said that it has been 36 days since the ban was put on place in Kashmir and it has “triggered a human crisis there”.

Uneasy over the abrogation of Article 370 in Kashmir by India, the Pakistan envoy told Guterres that India’s steps have triggered a threat to the global peace.

Pakistan will not be quiet over this situation, the envoy said.
