Delhi for ‘bilateral’ solution to issues with Islamabad: India responds to UN Chief’s K-remark

Gopal Bagley, the spokesperson of Indian External Affairs ministry.

Srinagar: India on Thursday said that the bilateral issues between India and Pakistan will have to be decided “bilaterally”, reacting to suggestions by UN chief Antonio Guterres that he is engaged in bringing about a dialogue between the two neighbours on Kashmir issue.

External Affairs Ministry spokesperson Gopal Bagley told reporters in New Delhi today that he was aware of the remarks made by Guteress that he has raised the issue during his meetings with Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his Pakistani counterpart Nawaz Sharif.

“I have seen the reply which has been reported in the media. Essentially the secretary general asked a question in response to a question… Bilateral issues have to be decided bilaterally and the UN secretary general has been made aware of that position,” Bagley said.
