"The Foreign Minister further suggested to the Security Council for doubling the number of United Nations Military Observer Group in India and Pakistan (UNMOGIP) observers and persuading India to allow them to patrol on its side of the LoC as well," the statement said.

The Pakistani minister's communications come in the wake of the abrogation of Article 370 in India. Additionally, Jammu and Kashmir has also been hived into two Union Territories of Jammu and Kashmir and Ladakh. Islamabad has objected to these latest developments in the state.

New Delhi has, however, dismissed Pakistan's comments while repeatedly reinforcing that its steps in Jammu and Kashmir are entirely a matter of its internal affairs.

Apart from this, the Pakistani prime minister Imran Khan also held separate conversations with the French president Emmanuel Macron and the Jordanian king Abdullah II on Wednesday over Jammu and Kashmir.
