India consistently made it clear to Pakistan that cross-border terrorism and talks cannot go hand-in-hand.

When asked on the dialogue between the two countries, he said “I hope that the importance of both India and Pakistan is such in international affairs, I hope that the two countries will be able to engage in a meaningful dialogue.”

In relation to the human rights situation, the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights has produced recently a very detailed report. So, the UN has clearly done its job in that regard.

While responding to a question by a Pakistan journalist on the situation in Kashmir, Guterres said “the Indo-Pak ties strained after the terror attacks by Pakistan-based terrorists in 2016 and India’s surgical strikes inside Pakistan-occupied Kashmir. The ties further nose-dived in 2017 with no bilateral talks talking place between them.”
