“Can Indian EAM explain that if Kashmir is an ‘integral part of India, why is it on the Agenda of Security Council’,” he said on Twitter.

“Strange that Indian EAM is disowning the UNSC resolution and that too at the UN,” Zakaria said in another Tweet.

Sushma Swaraj said that Pakistan persists in the belief that terror attacks will enable it to obtain the territory it covers.
