    India and Pakistan faced off Monday at the UN as Islamabad brought up Kashmir in its renewed campaign to internationalise the issue.

    Diyar Khan, a counsellor at Pakistan's UN Mission, said his country regretted that the people of Jammu and Kashmirhad been deprived of their right to self-determination.

    Self-determination did not lapse with the passage of time, he said. Nor could it be "set aside" by charges of terrorism.

    In his address to the UNGA committee that deals with social, humanitarian and cultural affairs, India's Mayank Joshi dismissed as unsolicited Pakistan's comments about Kashmir and said they were factually incorrect. Free, fair and open elections were regularly held in that state at all levels, he said.

    Exercising the right of reply, Pakistan's delegate escalated the issue, questioning New Delhi calling Kashmir a part of India and citing UN Security Council resolutions describing Kashmir a disputed territory. Regarding elections in Kashmir, he asserted that polls conducted by the Indian authorities could not be a substitute for a UN plebiscite.

    The Indian delegate pointed out that the elections in Kashmir had been held under the scrutiny of international media, which had not faulted those elections.

    Going for another round, the Pakistani representative of Pakistan claimed that the elections were held under what he said was foreign occupation and could not be impartial.

    In reply, India's representative said that the Pakistani delegation's references to foreign occupation were out of context as Kashmir was a part of India.

    Why are we not raising POK in UN & atrocities of pakistan in UN when they accuse us?

    India should start racking up POK in very international forum.

    1) its a bilateral issue and it needed to be settled Govt to Govt unfortunately, Pak doesnt have a Govt, atleast a functional one.
    2)India is in control of is territory that include the J&K. Pakistan is trying to get international attention to things that was never theirs.
    3)Its an internal issue of India, and we dont want anyone else to solve it for us. We willl eventually solve it.

    You say eventually solve it. What are our plans? I don’t see any forcible action/plan from GOI towards this.

    Even in bilateral talks India is not taking any initiative to raise POK with pakistan, I looks like India wants status quo on Kashmir.

    So far the possible action plan is dribbling it till conditions are in our favor.
