The High Commissioner for Pakistan to the United Kingdom invited the attention of London Post as follows:

“With reference to your above news item I wish to inform you that the map of the region shown is incorrect and not in accordance with UN’s international map of South Asia.
See the link below:

UN Map of Pakistan & India with regards to Jamu and Kashmir
UN Map of Pakistan & India with regards to Jamu and Kashmir

Map in your news item shows the entire State of Jammu & Kashmir in India whereas it an internationally recognized dispute, sitting on the UN Security Council’s agenda unresolved for seven decades. The UNSC Resolutions on Kashmir call for Kashmiris’ right to self-determination under a UN supervised plebiscite. I therefore urge you to note the observation and you may like to take the corrective measure.”
