“The UN has backtracked from its statement that it will continue to monitor the situation in Kashmir through its military observer group in India and Pakistan, clarifying that the mission does not have a mandate beyond the LoC.”

The earlier statement by the UN chief’s deputy spokesperson Farhan Haq had no mention of LoC. The LoC clarification was given later by UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon’s spokesman Stephane Dujarric on August 2.

“I just wanted to clarify something, which is that UNMOGIP, the UN observer presence there, its mandate is to report on the ceasefire between India and Pakistan along the Line of Control. The UN Mission there does not have a mandate there beyond the Line of Control.” Dujarric added.
