Asad Majeed urges int'l community to take steps for Kashmir

Pakistan’s ambassador to the United States Asad Majeed Khan on Wednesday has said that the escalating unrest in the occupied Kashmir is threat to peace and security of the world.

In a statement, the ambassador urged international community to show seriousness on the Kashmir situation that worsened after abrogation of article 370 and 35A by Indian government.

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

Earlier, Asad Majeed said, “The world must take notice as nine million Kashmiris have been besieged […] President Donald Trump have offered to mediate thrice [for resolution of the crisis] while expressing concerns over the prevailing situation.”

He further maintained that everyone, including the chairman of the US House Intelligence Committee, have expressed strong concerns over India’s acts, in particular regarding humanitarian crisis in the region.

“The world is observing the attitude of India towards Kashmir,” he added.

Prime Minister Imran Khan is expected next month to highlight the “gravity of the situation” in Indian Occupied Kashmir where India’s crackdown has created a serious crisis, Pakistan Ambassador to the United States, Asad Majeed Khan, has said.

“The prime minister will be most likely coming to the General Assembly session and participating in the (high-level) General Debate,” Ambassador Khan said in an interview. “That will be an opportunity for us to highlight the issue and the gravity of the situation.”
