UAE Recognizes Kashmir as Part of India

Recently, the United Arab Emirates (UAE), a historically close ally of Pakistan, made a significant move by recognizing Gilgit-Baltistan and Kashmir as part of India during a G20 Summit video presentation.

This video, showcased at the G20 Summit in New Delhi, was shared on social media by the UAE’s Deputy Prime Minister, Saif bin Zayed Al Nahyan, formerly on Twitter.

Notably, the video depicted Gilgit-Baltistan and Kashmir, regions currently under Pakistan’s administrative control, as integral parts of India’s territorial map. While the video aimed to showcase regional plans for economic corridor projects connecting India with the Middle East and Europe, it inadvertently revealed the UAE’s diplomatic alignment with India’s stance on the Kashmir issue.

The inclusion of these regions within India’s borders effectively signified UAE’s approval of India’s territorial claims. This development suggests not only a strengthening relationship between India and the UAE but also underscores the growing distance between Pakistan and Middle Eastern nations, including the UAE and Saudi Arabia.

Saudi Arabia’s Prime Minister and Crown Prince, Mohammad Bin Salman, notably canceled an official visit to Pakistan before attending the G20 summit in India, sending a clear signal to Pakistan’s leadership.

Conversely, India, in collaboration with the Middle East and Europe, has embarked on an ambitious economic pathway, facilitated by a US-led agreement. This initiative aims to enhance business and connectivity across Asia, the Arabian Gulf, and Europe.

Pakistan, on the other hand, anticipates significant investments from Saudi Arabia and the UAE, totaling $50 billion over the next five years, with each country contributing $25 billion.

It remains to be seen how Pakistan will respond to these geopolitical shifts, particularly concerning its relationship with the UAE, given the statement issued without explicitly naming the UAE. The evolving dynamics in the region could have far-reaching implications.
