In yet another attempt to internationalise the issue, Pakistan's ambassador to the US Jalil Abbas Jilani has called on the global community to help resolve the long-pending dispute with India, calling it a “nuclear flashpoint” in South Asia.

Delivering a keynote address at the Affairs Council, a Washington-based think-tank, on Thursday night, the envoy said Kashmir was a “nuclear flashpoint” and it must not be underestimated.

Associated Press of Pakistan reported that the envoy regretted that India was undermining all diplomatic efforts for a dialogue, including its refusal to engage at the South Asian Association for Regional Cooperation (SAARC) forum.

“The peace and stability in South Asia will not be possible without resolving underlying disputes, particularly the and Kashmir being the core dispute,” Jilani said.

“The community and the US in particular need to play a role in seeking a peaceful settlement of Kashmir dispute between India and Pakistan, in accordance with the relevant UN Security Council resolutions,” he said.
