On Tuesday, UN chief Antonio Guterres after observing the tension between India and Pakistan “very closely” urged the governments of both the nations to exercise “maximum restraint” in order to assure that the situation does not get worse.
The UN Secretary General’s remarks came after Indian Air Force (IAF) carried out a pre-dawn air strike on a terror training camp Jaish-e-Mohammad inside Pakistan killing a large number of terrorists.
After the 1971 war, it was the first strike which the Indian Air Force (IAF) has carried out inside Pakistan crossing the Line of Control.
As per reports, the terrorist camp was located about 80 km from the Line of Control (LoC) at Balakot in Pakstan’s Khyber Pakhtunkhwa region. It was the biggest training camp of terrorists which India destroyed on Tuesday.
UN Spokesman Stephane Dujarric told the reporters about the remark of UN chief Antonio Guterres on air strike that “He is obviously following the situation very closely and reiterates his urgent appeal to both the governments of India and the government of Pakistan to exercise maximum restraint to ensure that the situation does not further deteriorate.”
Dujarric said Guterres did not have any information on the possible casualties and has seen the news reports.
The air strike was carried out after 12 days of the suicide attack in Jammu and Kashmir’s Pulwama district by Jaish that killed 40 CRPF soldiers.
India has asked Pakistan to take immediate and effective action against terrorists and terror groups operating from territories under its control.
