“We have decided to take Kashmir case to the International Court of Justice,” Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi told ARY News TV.

“The decision was taken after considering all legal aspects.”

This comes after the UN Security Council took up the Kashmir issue in an informal consultation in New York. The meeting by the Security Council ended without any outcome or statement.

Briefing the media following the conclusion of the UNSC meeting, India’s Permanent Representative to the UN Syed Akbaruddin said India’s position was and remains that matters related to the Article 370 of the Constitution are entirely an internal matter of India and these have no external ramifications.
