    United Nations (UN) Secretary-General Antonio Guterres on Thursday said that the body was following the Kashmir situation "very closely".

    "Obviously this [Kashmir] is a situation that we continue to follow and follow very closely,” Guterres' said in a statement released by his spokesperson Stephane Dujarric, a few days after at least 17 people were killed by the Indian army in held Kashmir in a fresh wave of violence.

    “The secretary-general has expressed and will continue to express his concern at the situation [in Kashmir]," Dujarric said. “I think we spoke about it earlier in the week, reminding all parties of the need to protect civilians."

    Talking to the media during a routine briefing, Dujarric assured that the "good offices of the UN are available" for both countries to reach a peaceful solution to the dispute. He added that while Pakistan has continuously sought UN's good offices to resolve the decades-old dispute, India has opposed the body's mediation.

    The statement pointed out that concerned parties must be willing to solve the issue in order to avail UN assistance.

    Dujarric also clarified that the option was not exclusively for India and Pakistan, but for every nation involved in a dispute.

    Three Indian soldiers and 13 suspected militants died on Sunday in several clashes south of Srinagar, the main city of the region. Besides, four civilians were also killed and dozens injured when police opened fire on thousands of demonstrators who poured onto the streets, throwing stones and chanting slogans against the Indian rule.

    The violent clashes in Kashmir sparked protests in several areas of Pakistan on Friday. Jamiat Ulema-i-Islam (JUI), Jamaat-i-Islami, Shia Ulema Council and Jammu and Kashmir Movement announced a "day of protest" to express solidarity with the people of held-Kashmir as well as those martyred in an Afghan airstrike on a seminary in Kunduz.

    The leaders of the political parties will stage protests in Rawalpindi and Islamabad after Friday prayers.

    JUI carried out a rally in Sukkur to express solidarity with the people of held-Kashmir. The protesters marched from Madarssa Manzil Gah to the press club, where a demonstration was staged.

    The protesters demanded that the Indian forces end the use of force against people of held-Kashmir and urged the UN and other international bodies to take notice of the ongoing issue.

    With additional reporting by Obaidullah Sheikh and Javed Hussain.

    The UN has become totally useless and obsolete in the past 3 decades. Sits back and watches as nations around the world engage in war. It was toothless body in the Syrian crisis which resulted in one of the most horrific refugee crisis.

    The bold part is know to the Pak foreign office. Why then does Pak do what it has done for decades with monotonous regularity with the same results ?

    Solutions for local problems have to be found locally not internationally.

    Anyone who thinks Kashmir issue will be resolved dialogues, protests etc. lives in fools paradise. We all know war is bad thing but unfortunately only a war will decide this unfinished agenda. It is inevitable sooner or later it will bound to happen. The sufferings of sub-content will continue till that date. As a Muslim I firmly belief there is only one winner and that is Islam.

    Pakistan has tried even though while India has imposed a 2.5 front war on Pakistan.

    Terrorism and ecnoecon terrorism is being used as legitmate foreign policy all while UN is busy dealing with BS issues.

    Pakistan will use nuclear detterence if come election year India needs a deflecting tactic to keep fasicsts in charge of its largest sham of a democracy.

    Pakistan objects to India getting a permanent seat in UNSC purely on principle regardless of Kashmir.

    Never did the above caretakers of Islam stage a demonstration in solidarity of those innocent civilians who are killed by the IED exploded by Taliban or other such freedom fighters elsewhere.

    Why the life of civilians have value only when they get killed by someone whom these organizations don't like ????

    What a bunch of hypocrite. :disagree::disagree::disagree:

    Pakistan is trying to improve relations with Russia, a country that has pulverized Chechnya to rubble, including its people. But for the sake of national interests these things can be overlooked.
