India said this during the participation in a debate on UN peacekeeping operations. India’s Permanent Representative Hardeep Puri reiterated India’s stand for better utilization of present resources, at a time when there is requirement of austerity in the world.

Hardeep Puri said, “The UNMOGIP’s role has been overtaken by the Shimla Agreement of 1972 between India and Pakistan. In times of austerity, we need to address the question whether the resources being spent on UNMOGIP would not be better utilised elsewhere.”

He further pointed out the Shimla Agreement which allows India and Pakistan to bilaterally resolve the differences if any. He said, “The Shimla Agreement was signed by the heads of the two governments and ratified by their respective parliaments.”
