Pakistan is likely to ratchet up tension along the Line of Control (LoC) With its efforts to internationalise the Kashmir issue not playing to script.
The UNGA will open with the Climate Action summit on 23rd September, with Prime Minister Narendra Modi speaking in the first of the three groups of speakers at the event.
As per the diplomats and national security officials, National Security Advisor Ajit Doval is not accompanying PM Modi on his US trip. He has decided to focus on J&K because New Delhi believes Islamabad is going to try to orchestrate violence in the valley ahead of Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan’s speech at the UNGA.
The diplomats have added that at the Organization of Islamic Conference’s (OIC) meeting this week, the Kashmir issue has not been discussed with Arab nations more worried about aggressive statement of Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu on Palestine.
Similarly, other international groupings such as the Commonwealth of Nations have stated that they have no appetite to raise the Kashmir issue in the context of abrogation of article 370.
The Indian intelligence assessment states that the Pakistan Army will try to push as many jihadists as possible into the Valley before the onset of winter in north Kashmir with Keran, Kupwara, Gurez and Gulmarg sector being the prime routes for infiltration.
