Shah Mehmood Qureshi addresses a press conference in NADRA headquarters

Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi says the airspace closure hasn’t been finalized yet.

Speaking to the media at the NADRA office in Islamabad on Wednesday afternoon, the minister said Prime Minister Imran Khan will make a final decision after evaluating the situation.

He said India has shocked the world with the prison-like situation in Kashmir.

The international community is no longer oblivious to the situation as it was before, he said, adding that if the situation is fine, as India claims, then they should let UN observers in to Srinagar.

The minister said if India truly wants freedom and democracy in the valley, it should allow boxer Amir Khan to enter.

Pakistan took him around the whole valley but India didn’t do the same, claimed Qureshi.

He said a curfew is being imposed in Kashmir. India has imposed restrictions on Kashmiris and in front of each house is a soldier, said Qureshi.

He urged India to remove the restrictions, release the thousands of imprisoned Kashmiris and lift the curfew.

Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi has said Prime Minister Imran Khan will forcefully present aspirations of Kashmiri people before the international community during his address to the UN General Assembly (UNGA) next month.

Talking to the media persons in Islamabad on Wednesday, he said the Prime Minister will also hold bilateral meetings and attend other events in New York on the sidelines of UN General Assembly session.

The Foreign Minister acknowledged that under Shimla agreement, both Pakistan and India were bound to bilaterally resolve Kashmir dispute.

However, said Modi should tell to the international community whether his 5th August’s measures were bilateral or unilateral in nature.

It is the Indian Prime Minister who undermined the spirit of bilateralism.
