India has called upon Pakistan not to involve the United Nations in the Kashmir dispute and resolve any conflict through bilateral dialogue, the BBC Urdu reported on Friday.

While speaking at a ceremony of the Indo-Tibetan Border Police, India’s Home Minister Rajnath Singh asked Pakistan to stop ceasefire violations from their side, adding that Indian forces guarding the border possess the “capability to give a befitting reply” to these misadventures.

However, Singh disapproved of Pakistan’s recent move of approaching the UN to ‘internationalise the Kashmir issue’ and seeking the world body’s intervention, saying all issues could be resolved through bilateral talks.

Singh was of the opinion that Pakistan should not try to involve any third-party with intent to mediate the crisis. “Pakistan has accepted a resolution in National Assembly asking for UN’s intervention… but if there is a problem it should be resolved through bilateral talks,” he maintained.

Many analysts in India think that it was wrong on the part of government to halt dialogue process with Pakistan. Congress’ leader and former finance minister P Chidambaram has also criticized the Modi government in this regard.

Meanwhile, India announced setting up of 54 new border outposts and a INR1.75 billion package for beefing up the infrastructure along the border in Arunachal Pradesh, despite concerns raised by China.
