Pakistan seeks UN’s interference on Kashmir issue

Pakistan urged UN Security Council members to press India to halt violence in Kashmir.

The appeal came a day after suspected rebels attacked an Indian army base in Kashmir, killing 17 soldiers.

The Foreign Office said Monday that Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif sent letters to the United States, Russia, China, Britain and France asking them to intervene, report news agencies.

Sharif wrote that the violence is a threat to international peace and security.

The disputed Himalayan territory is split between Indian and Pakistani areas of control. Both nuclear-armed states claim Kashmir in its entirety.

The killing of a rebel commander in July sparked a wave of unrest, with near-daily clashes between Indian forces and protesters. More than 80 people were killed. –RH
