As per news report of NDTV, Given India's monthly spell at UNSC, Pakistan's Ambassador to the UN Munir Akram was quoted as saying by The Express Tribune that, "We (Pakistan) will be watchful, but not concerned." Back in June, India had said it desires "normal neighbourly relations" with Pakistan and the onus is on Islamabad to create a conducive atmosphere by taking "credible, verifiable" action to not allow any territory under its control to be used for cross terrorism. During a debate on the annual report of the UNSC, India said that issues between the two countries should be resolved bilaterally. However, New Delhi also slammed Pakistan for raising the matters of Kashmir which is internal to India, during the debate.
