Pakistan’s blatant refusal to Modi frustrates India

Pakistan’s blatant refusal to Modi frustrates India

Khan spoke after Pakistan fired back yesterday at Delhi's "jingoistic rhetoric" when India's foreign minister vowed to retake Islamabad's portion of Kashmir. "We should support India", said Czarnecki.

She said since both India and Pakistan are neighbors of China, the Chinese side hoped that its neighbors be in peaceful terms with each other.

The new decision by Pakistan comes amid the escalating tensions between the two countries post the abrogation of Article 370 from Jammu and Kashmir on August 5, 2019.

Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan has warned citizens against joining the fight in Kashmir, saying the Indian authorities were waiting for "any excuse" to crack down on the residents in the Himalayan territory.

Fed cuts interest rates to prop up the slowing economy
Inflation is projected to be 1.5 percent for the year, below the Fed's two percent target, before rising to 1.9 percent next year. The economic expansion appears durable in its 11th year of growth, with a still-solid job market and steady consumer spending.


The move allows outsiders to buy properties in Kashmir and take jobs there, a decision Kashmiris and Pakistan says is aimed to alter the demography of the disputed region and undermine a future UN-brokered plebiscite.

The UN chief was asked about the situation in Jammu and Kashmir and what will he do to bring a solution to the Kashmir issue. However, Pakistan has denied the request of clearance of his flight over its airspace. This is the second time in a month that Pakistan has denied permission for an Indian flight to use its airspace. "He will have acted as an enemy of the Kashmiris", Khan said during a speech in Torkham on the border with Afghanistan on Wednesday.

"They need an excuse", he said of Indian troops.

Tensions have spiralled since New Delhi's move on its side of the de facto border - the Line of Control - to change the status of the Himalayan territory, with Pakistan repeatedly likening Modi to Hitler and calling for global intervention. Those steps, he said, were in violation of the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) resolutions and global law.
