New Delhi: Russia on Friday has extended support to India over Kashmir issue saying it is an “internal matter belonging to constitutional space of India”.
Russia’s Ambassador to India, Nikolay Kudashev, has slammed Pakistan and China to raise the Kashmir issue at the United Nations Security Council.
China, at the behest of Pakistan, had sought to raise the Kashmir issue at the closed-door consultations at the UNSC. But, other members of the 15-nation council refused to take up the issue calling it a bilateral matter between India and Pakistan.
This is strictly a bilateral matter for India and Pakistan to discuss on the basis of the Shimla Agreement and the Lahore Declaration, Kudashev said.
Kudashev said that normalcy was fast returning to the Valley which was once plagued by terrorism.
