Pakistan's efforts to raise Jammu and Kashmir at the UN Security Council through China crumbled once again on Wednesday as most members of the world body said it was not the place to discuss the issue..
India slammed the move, asking Islamabad to focus on addressing issues like sheltering terrorists to improve relations with New Delhi. 'Pakistan's practice of using false pretences to distract from addressing the malaise that afflicts it, has run its course today,' India's Permanent Representative to the UN, Syed Akbaruddin, said.
Earlier on Wednesday, Pakistan's 'all-weather ally' China made the fresh pitch to raise the Kashmir issue under 'other matters' during closed consultations in the Security Council Consultations Room.
'We once again saw an effort made by one member state of the UN, fail in plain view of all others,' Mr Akbaruddin said.
