Pak writes to UNSC, accuses India of threatening regional security

New Delhi,Feb23: Pakistan's Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi has written a letter to the United Nations Security Council accusing India of threatening regional security, the Foreign Office said on Friday, a day after the powerful UN body named Pakistan-based Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM) in a statement condemning the 'heinous' Pulwama attack perpetrated by the terror outfit in Jammu and Kashmir.

He also said India is accusing Pakistan of the Pulwama attack without any proof.

'It is with a sense of urgency that I draw your attention to the deteriorating security situation in our region resulting from Indian belligerence and threats of use of force against Pakistan.

'The situation poses a threat to international peace and security,' Qureshi said in the letter addressed to UNSC president Anatolio Ndong Mba.

He alleged that India is blaming Pakistan for the Pulwama attack 'to cover up its own operational and policy failures'.

On Thursday, in a strong show of international support for India, the UNSC comprising 15 nations, including Pakistan's key ally China, named JeM while condemning in the 'strongest terms' the 'heinous and cowardly' terror attack in Pulwama and stressed on the need to hold organisers and financiers of such 'reprehensible acts' accountable and bring them to justice.
