Pakistan says it’s going to downgrade diplomatic relations with India and suspend trade with the neighbor state, Reuters reported. The move comes after New Delhi revoked the autonomous status of the disputed Kashmir region.

The statement by the Pakistani government vowed that the country will take the Kashmir issue to the United Nations Security Council (UNSC).

It also said that Prime Minister, Imran Khan, told the Pakistani military to “continue vigilance.”

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.
