Pakistan says it’s going to downgrade diplomatic relations with India and suspend trade with the neighbor state, dubbing New Delhi’s decision to revoke the autonomous status of Kashmir as “unilateral and illegal”.

Pakistan vowed to take the Kashmir issue to the United Nations Security Council (UNSC), while Prime Minister, Imran Khan, told the Pakistani military to “continue vigilance.”

The Pakistan  government also announced that India’s envoy to Pakistan, Ajay Bisaria, will be expelled from the country as part of the response measures.

Bilateral trade between India and Pakistan that has now been suspended amounted to around $2.5 billion last year. That’s roughly 3 percent of Islamabad’s total annual trade.

On Tuesday, India’s lower house of parliament has voted to downgrades the status of Kashmir from a state to a union territory, which will prevent the Muslim-majority region from making its own legislation. India believes the issue of Kashmir is an internal one.
