Statement from the Security Council

Press Release regarding General VK Singh

We, the United Nations Security Council, strongly condemn General VK Singh’s authorization of the deployment of troops to the India-Pakistan border. Military action against Pakistan will not be met with a silent response. The United Nations Security Council is dedicated to preventing a conflict on the India-Pakistan border. The United Nations Security Council also requests that the Indian government maintains control over all aspects of the Indian military as understood by the constructional law. We would like to express significant concern on the presence of a rouge military in a rapidly destabilizing environment. We encourage both the Pakistani and Indian governments to maintain restraint and to halt the increased militarization of the borders. We are highly concerned for the people of these regions as the threat of biological, chemical, and nuclear warfare is significant.
