For peace in South Asia, equitable resolution of Kashmir issue is necessary: ​​Imran Khan

Pakistan News: Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan on Monday said a equitable solution to the Kashmir issue as per the UN resolutions and the wishes of the Kashmiri people is essential for lasting peace and stability in South Asia. Imran Khan made this remark while talking to Yusuf Eldobe, Special Envoy of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) for Jammu and Kashmir. Eldobe met him along with Assistant Secretary-General for Humanitarian Affairs Tarig Bakht and other senior members of the OIC delegation. India has in the past asked the OIC not to allow vested interests to take advantage of the platform to comment on the country’s internal affairs.

Foreign Ministry spokesperson Arindam Bagchi had said in August, “The OIC has no authority in matters relating to the Union Territory of Jammu and Kashmir, which is an integral part of India. It is reiterated that the OIC Secretary-General should refrain from allowing vested interests to exploit his platform for comments on India’s internal affairs.

Khan reiterated that an equitable settlement of Kashmir in accordance with UN resolutions and the wishes of the Kashmiri people is a prerequisite for lasting peace and stability in South Asia. In a statement, the Prime Minister’s Office said Khan also sought access to human rights organizations and media in Jammu and Kashmir to investigate alleged human rights violations.

He alleged that India’s unilateral action with effect from August 5, 2019 is aimed at depriving Kashmiris of the franchise and changing the demographic structure. It is noteworthy that on August 5, 2019, India withdrew the special status of Jammu and Kashmir and bifurcated the state into two union territories.

India has categorically told the international community that abrogation of most of the provisions of Article 370 is its internal matter. It has also advised Pakistan to accept the reality and stop all anti-India propaganda.
