Pakistan has told the UN Security Council that India has plans of building a wall along the Line of Control (LoC), while the latter has alleged that the claims have been made by terrorists.
Pakistan had addressed a letter to the President of the Security Council, Russian Ambassador Vitaly Churkin, earlier this month claiming that India had planned on building a "10 meter- high and 135 feet-wide embankment (wall) along the 197- kilometre Working Boundary", the Press Trust of India reported.
Pakistan's accusation against India is said to be based on Hizb-ul-Mujahideen chief Syed Salahuddin's information, and India has said it will respond at "an appropriate time".
"I believe the letter (dated September 9) is based on some kind of submission made by Salahuddin, who is a person that we consider to be a global terrorist. At the appropriate time we will respond to this," Indian Minsitry of External Affairs spokesperson Vikas Swarup told the media.
According to some news channels, terror conglomerate United Jihad Council was behind the push for the letter.
Pakistan said in the letter that it "considers the embankment a permanent structure that will bring about a material change in the territory in violation inter alia of... Security Council Resolution...of 1948".
Pakistan's Ambassador to the UN Maleeha Lodhi, who had issued the letter about India's alleged plans of building a wall, had also sent a letter to the UN on 4 September claiming there was no bilateral talks between India and Pakistan.
However, the Indian foreign ministry called the letter "contradictory".
"The first letter was written on September 4, which states that there was no bilateral dialogue. After that the BSF and Pak Rangers have already met. So the letter has itself contradicted itself that there is no dialogue as there has been a dialogue," Swarup said.
