PM Imran Khan makes an urge to the US President Donald Trump over his offer
ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan makes an urge to the US President Donald Trump over his offer of mediation on Kashmir issue.
US President Donald Trump had offered to make mediation between Pakistan and India during PM Khan visit to Washington.
Prime Minister Imran Khan on Sunday said this was the correct time for US President Donald Trump to mediate link the Kashmir issue, as India renewed its atrocities in the occupied valley with use of cluster bombs.
Condemning the attack by the Indian army along the Line of Control (LoC), PM Imran urged the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) to take notice of the attack.
“I condemn India's attack across LOC on innocent civilians and it's use of cluster munitions in violation of international humanitarian law and it's own commitments under the 1983 Convention on Certain Conventional Weapons. UNSC must take note of this international threat to peace and security.”
He added, “It is time to end the long night of suffering for the people of occupied Kashmir. They must be allowed to exercise their right to self-determination according to UN SC resolutions.”
The prime minister further said the only road to peace and security in South Asia runs through a peaceful and just settlement of Kashmir.
