WASHINGTON – Pakistani Ambassador to US Asad Majeed warns World of looming crisis over Occupied Kashmir.

Pakistani ambassador to US Asad Majeed Khan has said that international community should take the Kashmir issue seriously.

In an interview with ‘*The Wall Street Journal’*,the Pakistani envoy said that the escalating unrest in the Indian Occupied Kashmir (IoK) is threat to peace and security of the world.

He said that Prime Minister Imran Khan is expected next month to push the UN to pay more attention to India’s actions in Kashmir, as the nation seeks to jump-start international attention to New Delhi’s clampdown in the disputed territory.

“Pakistan already has warned that the situation in Kashmir could ignite a war with India, and highlighted that both countries are nuclear armed,” Asad Majeed said.

He mentioned that the UN General Assembly meeting will be an opportunity to highlight the serious nature of Kashmir issue. “The prime minister will emphasize on the UN to focus on Kashmir issue.

The ambassador urged international community to show seriousness on the Kashmir situation that worsened following abrogation of article 370 and 35A by Indian government that gave special status to the valley.

He further clarified that befitting response will be given to Indian Prime Minister (PM) Narendra Modi in case of attacking sovereignty of Pakistan.
