This is the time to mediate on Kashmir: Imran Khan reminds Donald Trump
ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Imran Khan has condemned the Indian use of cluster bombs on innocent civilians along the Line of Control (LoC).
In a statement on Twitter on Sunday, PM Khan said the use of cluster bombs is a violation of international humanitarian law and India’s own commitments under the 1983 Convention on Certain Conventional Weapons.
The Prime Minister urged the United Nations Security Council to take note of this international threat to peace and security.
He said it is time to end the long night of suffering for the people of Occupied Kashmir and they must be allowed to exercise their right to self-determination according to UNSC resolutions.
President Trump offered to mediate on Kashmir. This is the time to do so as situation deteriorates there and along the LOC with new aggressive actions being taken by Indian occupation forces. This has the potential to blow up into a regional crisis.
