ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Imran Khan has asked the foreign ministers of Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) to urge India to halt ‘illegal actions’ in Kashmir.
“International community has the responsibility to pressurize India to halt and reverse its illegal actions and aggressive policies and postures in Occupied Kashmir,” PM Imran Khan said while talking to Saudi Arabian Foreign Minister Adel Al Jubeir and UAE Foreign Minister Sheikh Abdullah bin Zayed Al Nahyan in Islamabad.
He stressed the importance of immediate lifting of curfew, removal of restrictions on movement and communications, and respect for the fundamental rights of the people of Occupied Kashmir.
The main focus of the talks was on the situation arising from India’s illegal and unilateral actions in the Indian Occupied Jammu and Kashmir.
The prime minister highlighted Pakistan’s deep concern over the worsening human rights and humanitarian situation in Occupied Kashmir because of the month-long complete lockdown and communications blackout in the occupied territory.
The visiting dignitaries reaffirmed the strategic significance of the relationship of Saudi Arabia and the UAE with Pakistan.
They fully understood the anguish of the people of Pakistan over the recent developments and expressed concern over the worsening humanitarian situation in Occupied Kashmir.
Imran Khan further underscored that India’s actions were a clear violation of UN Security Council resolutions and international law.
“There is a genuine fear of a false flag operation to divert world’s attention from India’s illegal actions and intensified repression of Kashmiris,” he said.
The premier added that Saudi Arabia and the UAE had an important role in this regard.
