外文标题：India asks UN team on Kashmir to leave Delhi
NEW DELHI: India has asked a United Nations military observer group on Kashmir to vacate a government-provided bungalow in New Delhi.
New Delhi considers Kashmir as an integral part of the country and has bristled against external involvement in the region including the UN Military Observers Group on India and Pakistan (UNMOGIP).
The Indian foreign ministry said on Tuesday the government had asked UNMOGIP to hand over the Delhi premises from where it was running a liaison office for more than four decades for free.
“We have said that as far as we are concerned the UNMOGIP has outlived its relevance,” Indian Foreign Ministry spokesman Syed Akbaruddin said.
UNMOGIP said it had received the request in May when India was in the midst of an election.
No reasons were given for vacating the office, Major Nicholas Diaz, in charge of the Delhi office said. He said the observers group would continue to operate in line with the UN mandate and that it was looking at alternative accommodation.
India showing its true colors, so much for upholding democracy.
what it got to do with democracy?
pakis already showed its true color, now most failed state in this world.
Misleading title. India has not asked them to leave delhi but to leave the bungalow they were using free of cost for last 4 decades. By the way Syed Akbaruddin is right that UN has lost its relevance on Kashmir and has no locus standi.
标题误导人。印度并未叫他们离开德里，而是叫他们离开免费住了40年的房子。顺便说下， Syed Akbaruddin说得没错，联合国没有发言权，在克什米尔问题上已经失去了意义。
wow, intentionally misleading headline….the articles says they were asked to vacat a free Delhi government bungalow…not leave Delhi and that they are looking for alternative accommodation in Delhi…..and will continue to operate…wow, ET…you’re great
Why doesn’t these buffoons go to pakistan and peddle their agenda.
These UN people naive and idiotic.
No free lunch any more! that was a temporary arrangement. They continued for more than 40 years! Time to move.
India lost Kashmir. Its defeat was not military. India lost Pakistan, but still behaves as though it had exclusive rights on it and its people. That’s why they do not want any kind of observers.
Now UNMOGIP will setup their camp in POK to understand the situation there.
and Nawaz Sharif will support India on this also
India has to implement UN Resolutions on Kashmir.
India is ocupying Kashmir illegally, has committed gross human rights violations, has sponsored terror in Sri Lanka, Nepal, Pakistan and Bangladesh – it is a rouge state witth no respect for international law or human rights
India has informed UN that it will no longer provide facilities for “free” in Delhi (In Srinagar, facilities are still provided for free). India wants UN to find its own facility in Delhi.
This is keeping inline with international standards. India govt has no mandate to fund UN activities in this goodwill way. India is just stopping the freebies(accommodation, army rations, fuel etc) given to this UNMOGIP, which is anyway irrelevant.
UNMOGIP can continue to stay in India and operate as long as they want.
India has lost the hearts and minds of Kashmiris though occupying the land through brute force. Their days in the valley is numbered.
By the way what the UN observers are doing in India? whats their objective to be in india and what have they achieved so far in 4 decades? Dont they know that UN resolution on Kashmir is not binding on any party? Could UN force Pakistan to withdraw its army from Pak occupied J&K to facilitate plebiscite? They are only wasting the money that member countries contribute to UN kitty.
Relax everyone – the landlord is only asking tenants to start paying rents!
Muslims were not the original inhabitants of Kashmir. The Turkic invaders forcibly converted the citizens after conquering the lands. India could not match them militarily. Now we can. Kashmir has been a part of India for over 4000 years and we will take what is rightfully ours. Every Indian stands firm on this.
they didnt ask UN to leave Delhi, they just told them to pay for their own office! What a misleading headline!
Ask them to pay the arrears of the past 40 yrs.
@Indian: only smart in this world is indian.
So it was the congress which was wasting Taxpayers money to entertain these.
Good Move Mr. Modi
Syed Jalal Kashmiri
We need more international observers in Kashmir, not New Deheli to monitor human rights abuses of Indian extremists and Indian soldiers against Kashmiri civilians only on the basis of their religion. Pakistani and Muslim nations observers should be allowed into Indian Kashmir to monitor the situation.
You cannot hide the truth of injustice forever.
