Exactly - so this narrative of Syed Akbaruddin to paint the picture that latest agreement (which was Simla) supersedes UN Resolutions is an embarrassment for a career diplomat when his and Indian Government's this stance is shredded to pieces:1st. No bilateral agreement between two countries can set aside UNSC unanimously passed resolutions. To do this UNSC has to pass another resolutions to set aside the pass resolutions.
2nd. By reading few points of this agreement shows that this agreement has already been broken and violated.
3rd. We are again in 1948 situation.
This is the propaganda of India only. I am sure that all those countries including Russia who imphasis on Simla agreement, had not read this agreement.Exactly - so this narrative of Syed Akbaruddin to paint the picture that latest agreement (which was Simla) supersedes UN Resolutions is an embarrassment for a career diplomat when his and Indian Government's this stance is shredded to pieces:
The first clause of the objective no. 1 reads as follows: “that the principles & purposes of the charter of United Nations shall govern the relations between the two countries.’’ So it begins by honoring the UN Charter without any exception. So, Simla reinforces the role of United Nations in the context of Pakistan & India, with Kashmir being no exception.
The 2nd Clause, which India extrapolates, thus restricting Kashmir to bilateralism, indeed talks about solving issues bilaterally, but the sentence doesn’t end before it leaves the window open for other ways, by adding “or any other means’’. The Clause is as follows: “That the two countries are resolved to settle their differences by peaceful means through bilateral negotiations or by any other peaceful means, mutually agreed upon between them.’’ Now, we know that Simla agreement neither excludes the UNSC resolutions on Kashmir, nor does it limit Kashmir to bilateralism.
This narrative based on lies by India has to be debunked holistically and forcefully as they are trying to create this narrative from an extremely weak foundation.
