People of Kashmir have peacefully chosen their destiny: India
PRESS TRUST OF INDIA
New York, Sep 27: India has rebutted Pakistan President Asif Ali Zardari's remarks on Kashmir at the United Nations, asserting that the Kashmiri people have "peacefully chosen their destiny" in accordance with democratic practises.
Foreign Secretary Ranjan Mathai said Jammu and Kashmir is an integral part of India and the country's position on the issue is well known.
"We have seen the reference to Jammu and Kashmir in the statement of the Pakistan president. Our principled position on the issue has been consistent and is well known," he said yesterday when asked to comment on Zardari's remarks.
"The people of Jammu and Kashmir, which is an integral part of India, have peacefully chosen their destiny in accordance with democratic practises. They continue to do so," he said yesterday.
Pakistan had raked up the issue of Kashmir at the UN again when Zardari said in his address to the General Assembly that "Kashmir remains a symbol of failures, rather than strengths of the UN system."
