PM to leave for New York on September 23
Prime Minister Imran Khan will leave for New York on September 23 to attend the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) session.
According to the details, PM Imran Khan will embark on the four-day tour to the United States via a private airplane.
In his address at the UNGA on September 27, PM Imran will highlight Indian atrocities in occupied Kashmir.
On the sideline of the UN General Assembly meeting in New York, PM Imran will hold meetings with Malaysian counterpart Mahathir Bin Mohamad and other world leaders.
He would also met with distinguished Pakistani businessmen and investors during his stay in the US.
Earlier in the day, Pakistan had impressed upon the international community to take cognizance of blatant human rights violations by the Indian occupying forces in Kashmir.
At his weekly news briefing, Foreign Office Spokesperson Dr. Muhammad Faisal had said the occupied valley had been converted into the largest prison in the history of mankind.
More than fourteen million people were incarcerated in their homes. He had said the Indian government had stationed over nine hundred thousand troops in the valley and Kashmiris are being denied access to any form of communication.
On the same day, Prime Minister Imran Khan met Chief of Army Staff General (COAS) General Qamar Javed Bajwa in Islamabad on Thursday.
Discussions focused on matters of national security and the situation in Indian Occupied Kashmir (IOK).
This was the duo’s first meeting after the premier approved a three-year extension in General Qamar’s tenure as army chief.
The extension, announced on Monday, was granted “in view of the regional security environment”.
“General Qamar Javed Bajwa is appointed Chief of Army Staff for another term of three years from the date of completion of current tenure. The decision has been taken in view of the regional security environment,” read a brief statement issued by the PM Office.
General Bajwa was set to retire on November 29 on completion of his three-year term but now he would continue to serve as head of the army until November 2022.
The government and army have put up a united front in the face of rising tensions with India.
