ISLAMABAD (92 News) - Prime Minister Imran Khan has said that Pakistan desired to further enhance bilateral cooperation with Austria in the fields including trade, investment, higher education, IT, tourism and climate change.

While talking to Federal Minister for European and International Affairs of Austria, Alexander Schallenberg, he expressed Pakistan’s serious concern at the conflict in Ukraine and stressed the imperative of finding a diplomatic solution. “World’s attention must not shift from Afghanistan and that urgent steps are needed to be taken to prevent humanitarian and economic crises in Afghanistan.”

The prime minister urged international community to take notice of serious human rights violations by India in Indian Illegally Occupied Jammu and Kashmir which have increased since New Delhi's illegal and unilateral actions of 5 August 2019. “World must impress upon India to comply with its international obligations to allow Kashmiris to exercise their right to self-determination as per international law and the UNSC resolutions.”

He also raised recent grave act of firing of an Indian missile into Pakistani territory, which has raised serious questions about India’s security protocols and technical safeguards against accidental or unauthorized launch of missiles in a nuclearized environment.
