New Delhi: UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres has said that he hopes the Kashmir issue between India and Pakistan can be solved peacefully.

“Well, the position of the UN and the resolutions that were taken are the same, remain the same. We have, as you know, a peacekeeping operation there. We are, of course, committed,” PTI quoted Guterres as saying on Friday.

Quoting Guterres further, the report said, “I’d offered my good offices several times, and we hope that this is something that can be solved peacefully and that the situation in Kashmir is a situation in which human rights are respected and in which people can live in peace and security”.

Guterres was responding to a question by a Pakistani journalist on the Kashmir issue during a press conference.

Tensions between India and Pakistan spiked after India abrogated provisions of Article 370 of the Constitution, revoking the special status to Jammu and Kashmir and bifurcating the state into two Union Territories on August 5, 2019. The move evoked strong reactions from various countries, politicians and rights bodies.
