He dismissed a reporter’s assertion that Guterres was reluctant to wade into the “festering dispute” in South Asia.

“I don’t think it is a matter of reluctance,” Dujarric said.

Repeating the official stand, as he has done several times this month and last, he said: “As I said, he is watching the situation very closely and reiterates his need for the parties to find a peaceful engagement … a peaceful solution through engagement and dialogue.”

“The Secretary-General is a student of history, he knows what has happened,” Dujarric said about the reporter’s reference to previous volatile situations.
