The United Nations has expressed concern over Indian government's move to revoke the special status of Kashmir, a UN-recognized disputed territory.

The concern was expressed by U.N. Secretary-General's Spokesman Stephane Dujarric while talking to reporters at the regular briefing at the UN Headquarters in New York.

Dujarric said the Secretary-General has all along maintained that India and Pakistan should resolve all outstanding disputes between the two countries, including Kashmir, through dialogue.

He urged all parties to exercise restraint.

Earlier, the UN Military Observer Group in India and Pakistan, known as UNMOGIP, has observed and reported an increase in military activities along the Line of Control.
