This was reported by the Associated Press, citing a letter from the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Pakistan, Shah Mehmud Qureshi.

According to the agency, in a letter he said that the Security Council "is obliged to prevent the recurrence of yet another Srebrenica and Rwanda," referring to the tragedies in Srebrenica in Bosnia in 1995 and in Rwanda in 1994.

Previously, Pakistan, following India’s decision to abolish the special autonomous status of Jammu and Kashmir, lowered diplomatic relations with New Delhi and suspended trade with a neighboring state.

UN Secretary General António Guterres called on India and Pakistan to refrain from any action that could affect the status of Jammu and Kashmir.
