ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Imran Khan has said that there was a danger of bloodshed in Occupied Kashmir and the world must act to avert this.
Interacting with the editorial board of The New York Times on Wednesday, he said the main purpose of his visit to the UN headquarters was to apprise the world about human rights violations in the Occupied Kashmir due to India’s illegal and unilateral occupation of Jammu and Kashmir.
Regarding Afghan peace process, the prime minister said he wanted peace in Afghanistan which was in the best interest of Pakistan.
Imran Khan said Pakistan wanted to lift its people out of poverty and focus on building a peaceful neighbourhood but the RSS-backed Modi government was following an agenda rooted in racial supremacy.
Talking to the editorial board of Wall Street Journal in New York, he said racism was often rooted in arrogance and arrogance can lead people to make huge blunders, that’s what Modi had done in the occupied Kashmir.
PM Khan said India’s repressive and illegal actions in occupied Kashmir would not only have repercussions for the region but for the entire Muslim world. “The world doesn’t realise that we are heading for a big disaster.”
About Afghan peace talks, the prime minister said the world should not fear that a peace deal in Afghanistan would take us back to 2001. “Peace is the most important goal and we should all pursue it.”
He called for resumption of Afghan peace talks between the United States and the Taliban.
On Sept 24, addressing a news conference along with Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi and Pakistan’s Permanent Representative to the UN Dr Maleeha Lodhi in New York, PM Imran Khan had urged the United Nations and the international community to push India into lifting the siege on Kashmir under which some eight million people were languishing for the past 51 days.
He had warned the situation could get worse if urgent efforts were not made to resolve the crisis.
