Moscow has become the first among the permanent members of the UNSC to formally state that abrogation of Article 370 is an internal matter for India
Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Russia on Saturday said that Moscow expects India and Pakistan not to allow aggravation of the situation in the region due to the change by Delhi in the status of the state of Jammu and Kashmir.
“We proceed from fact that the changes associated with the change in the status of the state of J&K and its division into two union territories are carried out within the framework of the Constitution of the Republic of India,” said the Ministry.
Russia is considered a consistent supporter of the normalization of relations between India and Pakistan.
“We hope that the differences between them will be resolved by political and diplomatic means on a bilateral basis,” the Ministry added.
