Prime Minister Imran Khan telephoned Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman here on Tuesday to discuss the latest developments in occupied Kashmir.

As per details, the two leaders discussed the latest developments in the region. Prime minister apprised the crown prince about the worsening situation in the held valley amid Modi government’s move to strip it (IoK) of its special status on Aug 5.

Indian-occupied Kashmir has been facing a clampdown since August 5 when New Delhi revoked Article 370 of the Indian Constitution, which conferred it a special status.

Hundreds of political leaders have been detained by authorities since the move.

This is the second phone call between the two leaders on the issue. The two leaders earlier spoke about the situation in the region in a phone call on August 7, where they discussed the development of the situation in the region and efforts exerted towards it.

Indian authorities continued to impose a strict curfew and other restrictions in the IHK to prevent people from holding demonstrations against the revocation of the autonomous status of Jammu and Kashmir.

Due to severe blockade, people have been facing acute shortage of essential commodities, including baby food and life-saving medicines, and the valley represents a humanitarian crisis.
