UN Sec General to raise Kashmir issue with world leaders

UN Sec General to raise Kashmir issue with world leaders

Prime Minister Modi, during his meeting with President Trump in France last month, had categorically rejected any scope for third party mediation on Kashmir, saying it was a bilateral issue between India and Pakistan.

Khan refused to talk to India and promised to raise the Kashmir issue at the United Nations General Assembly next week.

Foreign Minister shah Mahmood Qureshi will also attend the UNGA session, interact with his counterparts from various countries, and address important ministerial meetings especially the OIC Contact Group on Jammu and Kashmir.

According to the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf official Twitter account, the premier "highlighted the tyranny of the Indian government" in IHK following New Delhi's decision to strip the region of its autonomy on August 5.

"The prime minister's speaking engagements at leading think-tanks and meetings with heads of major global human rights organisations are also envisaged", the FO said.

The two leaders discussed ways to strengthen economic ties between Pakistan and Saudi Arabia, the PMO statement added.

Imran Khan also condemned the attack on oil installations of Saudi Arabia. "Our Kashmiri brothers are passing through a hard situation, though the dispute has also been internationalized and the world has come to believe in Pakistan's narrative".

India's counter offensive to Pakistan on the high human rights physique on September 10 was led by its Secretary (East) within the Ministry of Exterior Affairs Vijay Thakur Singh, who firmly put forth India's stance on Kashmir and rebutted Pakistan's shrill allegations of human rights violations.

The prime minister said that Quaid-u-Azam Mohammad Ali Jinnah had "already foreseen that Muslims will not get their due rights while living in India, which Modi's actions have proven".

Indian authorities are waiting for "any excuse" to crack down in the Himalayan region, he warned, promising again to raise the issue at the United Nations General Assembly next week.

Earlier, on arrival at Royal Terminal of Jeddah, Prime Minister Imran Khan was welcomed by Governor of Makkah Khalid Al Faisal Bin Abdulaziz.

The prime minister said that various efforts were also being made for ease of doing business so that the people could find incentive to invest in the country.
