In line with his promise to raise the Kashmir problem on all platforms, Prime Minister Imran Khan informed the Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia Mohammed bin Salman about the latest events in Kashmir occupied in a telephone conversation.
the Saudi press agency (SPA), the official news agency of the kingdom, reported Monday night that Prime Minister Imran had called the crown prince and discussed the regional situation along with the current situation in occupied Kashmir.
The prime minister, in a televised speech on Monday, promised to "act as an ambassador for Kashmir" and discuss the issue on each platform.
"I will tell the world about this, I have shared it with the heads of state with whom I have been in contact. I will also raise this issue in my speech at the UN General Assembly," he said. He also addressed the lack of action by Muslim countries, including the Middle East, and assured the nation that "if some Muslim countries are not raising this problem due to their economic interests, they will eventually come to our side. They will have to, in time. "
Meanwhile, Pakistan's ambassador to the United Nations, Maleeha Lodhi, met with the president of the UN General Assembly, Maria Fernanda Espinosa, and informed her "in detail about the serious situation in occupied Kashmir." In a tweet on Tuesday, Lodhi said he told Espinosa about the curfew and the ongoing blockade imposed by the Indian government in the occupied region that is "exacerbating the suffering of the Kashmir people."
"The UN should fulfill its obligations in IOK," he added.
The occupied territory has been under a strict closure imposed by the Indian government earlier this month. The measure is considered a measure to avoid protests over the repeal of article 370 of the Indian constitution, which granted Kashmir the special status occupied. Despite the blockade and the blackout of communications, which has entered its fourth week now, there have been reports of major protests.
