• UN calls on India, Pakistan to end tensions


    UNITED Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon called on India and Pakistan to focus on resolving their differences peacefully via dialogue. “The Secretary-General calls on both sides to solve the issues peacefully and through dialogue,” Ban’s spokeperson noted in response to questions on the UN’s stance on the collapse of talks between India and Pakistan. Ban’s statement came a week after New Delhi canceled talks with Islamabad following a trip by the Pakistani High Commissioner to India to meet with Kashmir-based separatists. Tensions have risen between the two countries after a relative period of warm relations following the inauguration of Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi in May this year.
