UN chief calls for immediate end to Kashmir violence

UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moonUNITED NATIONS: UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon called on Tuesday for an “immediate end to violence” in Indian-held Kashmir, following weeks of confrontation between Indian troops and Kashmiri protesters.

His spokesman Martin Neseriky said in a statement that Mr Ban had urged “calm and restraint by all concerned”.

Responding to a question at a briefing, Mr Neseriky said the “secretary general regrets the loss of life” due to hostilities in the region.

In August, the UN chief issued a similar statement calling for calm and restraint but later withdrew it saying it was just an advisory and not a statement from his office.

But now that the situation in the occupied territory has become endemic he was constrained to respond as journalists raised questions about his position on the deteriorating situation in the area and questioned his ‘no comment’ posture.
