Imran Khan phones Saudi crown prince
ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Imran Khan on Tuesday made a second telephone call to Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman bin Abdulaziz and discussed Indian rights abuses in Kashmir.
PM Khan briefed the Saudi crown prince about the latest developments in the Indian-occupied Kashmir.
The move comes amid growing anger in Pakistan over silence of Arab world about unlawful and unilateral India move to annex Kashmir and split the region into two union territories.
ON the other hand, UAE and Bahrain awarded Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi with highest civilian awards last week.
In his address to the nation this afternoon yesterday, PM Khan said the major world powers have a responsibility to help the oppressed Kashmiris, but even if they do not do, we will go with the Kashmiris till our last breath.
The Prime Minister said both Pakistan and India are nuclear powers, and if the situation heads toward war, the entire world will get affected. He said the United Nations is the most responsible forum on the Kashmir dispute because its resolutions pledging plebiscite have not been implemented.
He said Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi has committed an historic blunder of abolishing the special status of occupied Kashmir, which will prove as an opportunity for the Kashmiris to get freedom.
He said Modi violated not only the UN Security Council resolutions but also the country’s own constitution and the promises of their founding fathers to the people of occupied Kashmir. He said the eyes of more than a billion Muslims are set on the United Nations to take steps in resolution of Kashmir dispute.
Unveiling the strategy on Kashmir issue, Imran Khan said we have to tell the world what is happening in occupied Kashmir and also assure Kashmiris that we are with them.
He announced that we will organize an event at national level every week to demonstrate solidarity with the people of occupied Kashmir. He appealed the people to stand from 1200 hours to 1230 hours on the next Friday to send across a message that we are standing with Kashmiris.
