Maleeha Lodhi, Pakistan’s permanent representative to the United Nations, has on Wednesday delivered a letter to the UN security council where it claimed a breach of peace and security after India carried out air strikes on Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM) terror outfit camps in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province of Pakistan, in Balakot.
According to ANI news reports, in a tweet, Maleeha wrote: “Our foreign minister’s letter to the UN security-general (Antonio Guterres) about India’s act of aggression against Pakistan has been circulated as a document to the UN security council today, at our request.”
After Indian Air Force’s strike on JeM’s major camps in Balakot, Pakistan told the UN secretary-general, Antonio Guterres, that the IAF strike is purely equivalent to “aggression against Pakistan”.
Pakistan’s foreign minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi, in a letter to UN chief Guterres, wrote: “I am writing a letter to you in view of the deteriorating of the situation. Indian jets violate the line of control (LOC) this morning. We had informed the UN about Indian aggression after Pulwama attack in the previous letter.”
Qureshi further outlined the IAF’s strike jeopardize the peace and security in the region, according to APY news.
This comes after India conducted a surgical strike on JeM camps in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province of Pakistan, in Balakot, eliminating a “large number” of terrorists, including top commanders, Indian foreign minister Vijay Gokhale has said earlier.
