The territorial conflict between India and Pakistan, which is based on the problem of divided Kashmir, have stepped into a new stage. The sharp deterioration of relations of Delhi and Islamabad occurred after the Prime Minister of Pakistan Imran Khan introduced a new political map of the country for the first time included the whole of Kashmir, including the part controlled by Delhi, and a number of internationally recognized Indian territories. While Pakistan openly declared determination to achieve separation of Kashmir from India.The first anniversary of the reorganization of the border with Pakistan and populated mostly by Muslims of the Indian state of Jammu and Kashmir, which a year ago was created by two Union territories — Jammu and Kashmir— has aggravated long-standing Kashmir issue, “the oldest conflict on the agenda of the UN.” A new attempt to initiate discussion on the issue of Kashmir in the UN Security Council has taken China. Beijing, playing the role of older brother for Pakistan, a year ago, already trying to achieve condemnation of the actions of India at an emergency meeting of the security Council, but this attempt was not successful: other members of the UN security Council, including Russia, China did not support.Read deleteace was also the second attempt by Beijing. “We categorically reject the intervention of China into our Affairs. China needs to draw the right conclusions from these fruitless attempts,”— said in a statement on Thursday the statement of the foreign Ministry of India.In turn, permanent representative of India to the UN TS Tirumurti reported that at a meeting in new York closed session of the UNSC, “almost all countries have stressed that the issue of Jammu and Kashmir is bilateral and does not deserve the time and attention of the security Council”.Meanwhile, the situation in Kashmir deteriorated. On Wednesday, the government of India was forced to enter throughout the Kashmir valley on a two-day curfew. The troublemaker became Pakistan, not reconciled to the decision of new Delhi to repeal article 370 of the Indian Constitution, which gives Jammu and Kashmir special status.In Pakistan do not cease mass action in support of the “liberation struggle of the Kashmiri brethren”, initiated by radical Islamists. On Wednesday during one of such meetings organized in Karachi the opposition Islamist organization “dzhamaat-and-Islami” (banned in Russia), about 40 people were injured in the explosion of a grenade thrown into the crowd.Responsibility for the attack claimed by a local separatist group “Revolutionary army Sindhudesh”. While “dzhamaat-and-Islami” supported the Kashmiri separatists, “the Revolutionary army Sindhudesh” declared the task of the armed struggle for an exit the second-largest of Pakistan’s Sindh province, where the largest mountains��a country of 30 million Karachi from Pakistan.Calling the presentation “the most historic day in the history of Pakistan,” Imran Khan said that the new political map has already been approved at the Cabinet meeting and “is supported by all political parties.”Despite long-standing hostile relations of Delhi and Islamabad to go for such a radical step had not previously been settled, none of the Pakistani government, regardless of who was in power in Islamabad — military or civil administration. The limiting factor was resolution of the UN security Council that define Kashmir as a “disputed territory”.However, turning Indian territory into Pakistan, the Prime Minister gave to understand that the point of no return in relations with new Delhi and passed previous international documents for him lost its meaning.The next day after submitting a new political map of Pakistan Imran Khan has developed a diplomatic offensive. On Wednesday in his address to the nation he vowed to fight the Indian presence in Kashmir. Calling the past year “a 365-day unprecedented, inhuman blockade” of Kashmir, the Pakistani leader has accused India of “crimes against humanity that have destroyed many lives and threatened the identity of the people of Kashmir”. “As expected, the Kashmiris had rejected these illegal steps, like Pakistan. Throughout the struggle of the Kashmiris Pakistan will stand shoulder to shoulder with their brethren, until they exercise their right to self— determination,” concluded Imran Khan.Submitted in August last year, the initiative of the Central authorities to change the status of Jammu and Kashmir, Prime Minister modi this time did not engage in polemics with Islamabad. Delhi limited official response the foreign Ministry of India, in a statement which said: “We have seen the so-called political map of Pakistan, which announced Prime Minister Imran Khan. This display of political absurdity, which leads to untenable claims on the territory of the Indian state of Gujarat and Union territories of our Jammu and Kashmir and Ladakh”.”These ridiculous assertions have no legal force or international confidence. In fact, these new attempts only prove the obsession of Pakistan’s territorial expansionism supported cross-border terrorism”,— concluded the Indian foreign Ministry.”The decision of Islamabad to formally integrate part of the Indian territories in the Pakistan and publicly to proclaim his strategic objective fighting for their separation from India brought the old conflict Delhi and Islamabad to a new level. In its decision of Imran Khan burns bridges and deprives the field of maneuver for future administration in Islamabad who will now have to continue the gesture��second confrontation with India. In this situation there will be no place of diplomacy and a rare thaw in relations between the two countries, which we saw in the early 2000-ies, during the reign of the Indian Prime Minister Atal Behari Vajpayee and Pakistani President Pervez Musharraf”,— explained “Kommersant” Director of the Center for Indian studies, Institute of Oriental studies Tatyana Shaumyan. “As a result, we are witnessing a situation where a frozen conflict in Kashmir is thawing before our eyes, threatening to turn South Asia into a new source of international instability”— sums up the expert.Sergey Strokan
