Ties with India ‘complicated’ due to Article 370: Bilawal

New York: Pakistan’s Foreign Minister Bilawal Bhutto Zardari has said that his country’s relationship with India has been “particularly complicated” by New Delhi’s decision to abrogate Article 370 in Jammu and Kashmir and the recent recommendation by a delimitation commission.”

Bilawal, who is on a maiden visit to the US, made the remarks while responding to questions during a press conference, where he underlined that at this moment the “practical space” for economic activity, dialogue, and diplomacy is “very limited.”.

“As far as the question of our relationship with India is concerned, it is particularly complicated” by their recent actions in Kashmir – firstly the August 5, 2019 decision to abrogate Article 370 in Jammu and Kashmir as well as the recent decision by the delimitation commission on Jammu and Kashmir, he said.

Bilawal said that these actions “have complicated this matter.” He alleged that these actions are an “assault” on the United Nations, the UN Security Council resolutions, and the Geneva Convention.
