UN & US should play vital role in forcing Pak to stop exporting terror
2/14/2018 11:11:30 PM
India has conveyed to the UNO that the era of peacekeeping in Jammu and Kashmir is over because of the magnitude of the conflict sponsored by Pakistan. Instead of depending on peacekeeping operations time has come for the UN to initiate measures for the political solution of the issue. In fact India is not keen to reopen the channels of dialogue with Pakistan so long Islamabad continues to export terror to Jammu and Kashmir. And those who do not support any resumption of the process of dialogue do soon the plea that Pakistan has Kashmir related fixation and during talks Pakistan may insist on incorporation of Jammu and Kashmir with Pakistan. Contrary to it India could claim that Jammu and Kashmir is an integral part of India and hence there is no room for a meaningful dialogue. Warning that more reliance on stronger peacekeeping operations will not bring peace or protect peacekeepers in high-risk environments, India has urged the UN to scale up strategies for political resolution of conflicts in the face of mounting fatalities among its personnel."Peacekeepers cannot be substitutes for efforts to resolve conflict," India's Permanent Representative Syed Akbaruddin told the Special Committee on Peacekeeping Operations on Monday. "This requires sustained political engagement. Such engagement needs to be addressed by the UN leadership at all levels and not by the troops alone."
Peacekeeping operations now deal with situations within a country, often involving non-state actors rather than conflicts between nations, he pointed out. That should have been the reason for giving up its recognition to the UN Military Observers Group. Also India has found the UNMOG officials playing a partial role and invariably these officials played an anti-India role when the mischief was committed by Pakistan. It is this consideration that has forced India to stop reporting to the UNMOG officials about any border trouble in the shape of ceasefire violations by Pakistan.. Hence there is no sense of granting recognition to the UNMOG officials who have been given all possible facilities. And despite it the UNMOG officials play a role that favours Pakistan in time of growing conflict on the LOC and on the IB. At time the UNMOG officials conveyed to the UN headquarters that the Indian troops had resorted to ceasefire violations when the Indian troops had simply retaliated Pak Army's ceasefire violations. In these circumstances it is often proposed that a more 'robust' UN peacekeeping approach can deliver better," he said. "With little international investment in conflict resolution, this is tantamount to 'arming without aiming'."
Military capabilities and posture alone would not be enough to respond to high-risk environments, he said. "Implementation of 'robust' mandates is a much more complex task with serious inherent risks and less-than-certain outcomes, while possibly impacting the perceived impartiality of the UN."As historically the highest contributor of personnel to peacekeeping operations and currently having 6,697 under the UN's blue flag, India has a special interest in ensuring the safety of peacekeepers at a time of growing attacks on them."Tragically, the level of casualties among peacekeepers, in the last five years, is the highest in any five-year period since the UN began keeping the peace," Akbaruddin said. India is a country which has sacrificed perhaps the largest number of its nationals in support of international peace and security, and this is a matter concern."India has suffered 163 fatalities since the peacekeeping operations began in 1948, the most by any country. And India wants the UN and the US to play a vital role in forcing Pakistan to export terror to Jammu and Kashmir and to sponsor insurgency in Kashmir valley which has left scores of security personnel and civilians dead in the recent months.
