India at the United Nations, has said that the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation has no locus standi to comment on Kashmir.
“The Organisation of Islamic Cooperation in its statement contains factually incorrect and misleading references to the Indian state of Jammu and Kashmir,” Sumit Seth, the First Secretary at the Permanent Mission of India to UN said, using the Right of reply in response to Pakistan’s statement on behalf of the OIC.
On behalf of the OIC, Pakistan had tried to raise the Kashmir issue and accused India of denying the “right of self-determination” to Kashmiris, which India “outrightly rejected.”
“The Indian state of Jammu and Kashmir is an integral and inseparable part of India. The OIC has no locus standi on India’s internal affairs. We strongly advise the OIC to refrain from making such references in future,” India said.
