NOTE: The idea that Kashmir was dropped was based on an error, in which reporters looked at the wrong document:

The authors of these articles may have picked up the most recent addendum to the Summary statement of matters of which the Security Council is seized, which publishes only the list of matters which have been considered in a formal meeting since 1 Jan. 2007. They missed in that addendum a paragraph explaining that the full list appears in Add.9 of Mar. 2010, which list continues to include the agenda item under which the Council has taken up Kashmir, which, by a decision of the Council, remains on the list for this year.

Mr. Rajiv Chandran
National Information Officer

Dear Mr Chandran,

It has recently been published in a section of Indian dailies that the United Nations no longer considers Kashmir as “disputed” territory and has dropped it from the agenda of the Security Council. The reports further mentions that according to the UN, Kashmir will henceforth be considered as an “internal” matter of India.

However, the undersigned, a human rights activist, didn’t find any such news in your website.

It’s therefore requested to kindly help us in solving this confusion by sending the actual fact.

An early reply from your end will be highly appreciated.

Anirban Sen
