PM Imran Khan vows to replace India with Pakistan as trading partner of Malaysia
ISLAMABAD - Prime Minister Imran Khan vows to replace India with Pakistan as trading partner of Malaysia.
Prime Minister Imran Khan on Tuesday said Pakistan will try its best to compensate for the loss suffered by Malaysia after New Delhi imposed sanctions on palm oil trade with Kuala Lampur.
The Pakistani prime minister made the remarks while addressing a joint press conference alongside Malaysian Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad.
India, Malaysia’s biggest palm oil customer, has imposed a ban on imports due to Mahathir’s strong criticism of Narendra Modi’s actions in occupied Kashmir and controversial citizenship law.
PM Imran also thanked his Malaysian counterpart for raising his voice on the issue of Indian occupied Kashmir which has been under lockdown for the last six months.
“A radical and extremist government has taken over India and has put the people of Kashmir in a prison. The Indian occupying forces have picked the Kashmiri leadership and locked up teenagers and put them in prison,” PM Imran said.
“The way you have stood with us and spoken about the injustice in the occupied valley, I want to thank you for that,” the prime minister said addressing the Malaysian premier.
