Rattled by India’s removal of Article 370 that grants special status to Jammu and Kashmir, Pakistan Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi has now reportedly asked Pakistanis to not live in a “fool’s paradise” by expecting United Nations Security Council (UNSC) to “wait with garlands” to support Islamabad’s contentions .
“Giving vent to emotions is easy and raising objections is much easier. However it is difficult to understand the issue and move forward. They are not waiting for you with garlands in their hands. Any members out of the P-5 nations can be a hurdle… Do not live in the fool paradise,” said Qureshi during a press conference aired on PTV on Sunday.
Qureshi’s comment came a day after Russia becomes the first P-5 member to support India over the abrogation of Article 370. It said all action taken by India was under the constitutional framework.
