UN chief offers mediation between Pakistan, India

United Nations:  UN Secretary-General Antonio Gutteres on Monday in wake of  increased incidents of  ceasefire violations along Line of Control has urged both Pakistan and India to resolve the issue through a dialogue to avert the causalities.

While responding to questions at the regular briefing in New York, UN spokesman Stephane Dujarric said that the UN chief is ready to mediate peace talks between India and Pakistan provided the two neighbours accept his good offices.

He underscored that the secretary general’s good offices work only when both parties agree to mediation, adding that the UN chief was following the situation in the disputed Kashmir region as clashes between the troops of two neighbouring countries along the LOC had escalated, and called for talks between the two countries.

Pakistan has repeatedly condemned the unprofessional approach of targeting innocent civilians by the Indian army from across the Line of Control.
