The G20 summit is underway in boycotted Kashmir

No government delegations are anticipated from Turkeys or Saudi Arabia, and G20 member China, which is locked in a military standoff with India along their largely undelimited border in the Ladakh region, declined to attend the tourism working group meeting. Beijing also skipped earlier G20 meetings in Ladakh and Arunachal Pradesh, which it claims are part of Tibet. According to Fernand de Varennes, the UN’s special rapporteur on minority problems, New Delhi is attempting to use the G20 summit to “portray an international seal of approval” on a situation that “should be decried and condemned,” he said last week. Pakistan accused India of acting with “arrogance” by conducting the huddle in the disputed area where, in accordance with UN resolutions, a referendum must be held to grant the Kashmiri people the right to self-determination, which India denied.
