“The United Nations has become an important battleground for a pushback against China, whose sponsorship and protection of Pakistan came under pressure from the combined diplomatic heft of the United States, India and France.” thewire.in/diplomacy/pulw…
^^ “The firm statement on the Pulwama attack is a move forward – it draws a clearer line on terrorism and embarrasses China for the company it keeps. China used every trick in the book first to prevent the statement from being issued”
^^ “The real heavy lifting was done by the US,” a UN observer close to the negotiations said. “Uncle Sam went with his hack saw and got results.”
^^ China blocked and undermined the US-led effort for six long days to protect Pakistan until it couldn’t. US negotiators, working in consultation with Indian diplomats, pushed back, leaving Beijing no room to manoeuvre.”
^^”China wanted to use the term “Indian-administered Kashmir” instead of Jammu and Kashmir. Then it didn’t want to name the terrorist group even though JeM had claimed responsibility for the Pulwama attack”
^^The UNSC statement says Jammu & Kashmir. It puts a seal on not recognising any dispute. It was dropped from the list a few years back. “The statement treats the attack as an event that took place in an Indian state, not in a disputed region, which is a big setback to Pakistan”
^^’“This is not an insignificant gain,” a UN observer told The Wire. “The UNSC statement has brought J&K into the normal discussion on terrorism. Now terrorism in J&K is equivalent to terrorism in France.”’
^^”The Russians, while sympathetic to India’s case, were largely quiet through the six-day diplomatic battle caught as they were between an old friend and a new one. It’s well established that Russia and China work in unison in international organisations.”
Impact of Pulwama attack will be a lot more than just our relations with Pakistan. Equally big impact will be with China & of larger consequence. From day 1, China’s role has been exposed. Our relations with the US strengthen. Old friend Russia, well..
