United Nations: UN chief Antonio Guterres is following the situation between India and Pakistan “very closely” and has appealed to the governments of both nations to exercise “maximum restraint” to ensure the situation does not deteriorate further, a top UN official said Tuesday.
The UN Secretary General’s remarks came after Indian Air Force (IAF) carried out a pre-dawn airstrike on a terror training camp inside Pakistan.
“He is obviously following the situation very closely and reiterates his urgent appeal to both the governments of India and the government of Pakistan to exercise maximum restraint to ensure that the situation does not further deteriorate,” UN Spokesman Stephane Dujarric told reporters when asked about the Secretary General’s remarks on the airstrike.
Dujarric said Guterres did not have any information on the possible casualties and has seen the news reports.
Guterres is returning to New York from Geneva and Dujarric said he had spoken to the UN chief about the situation between India and Pakistan before he boarded his plane. (Agencies)
