September 9, 2019
ISLAMABAD (92 News) – Prime Minister Imran Khan has welcomed the growing concern and demands by the international community, global leaders, United Nations Secretary General Antonio Guterres and the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights (UNHCHR) for India to lift its six-week siege of Indian Occupied Jammu and Kashmir (IOJK). In a tweet on Monday, he said that the international community must not remain indifferent to the massive human rights abuses by Occupation Indian forces under cover of a brutal siege. “I especially welcome the statement by the UNHCHR chief in Geneva today. I call upon the UN Human Rights Council to immediately set up the independent investigation commission to probe human rights abuses in IOJK as recommended by the UNHCHR's two reports on Kashmir. The time to act is now,” he said.
Our armed forces fully prepared to thwart any Indian misadventure: PM
On September 6, Prime Minister Imran Khan and Chief of Army Staff General Qamar Javed Bajwa visited the Line of Control (LoC) on the eve of the Defence and Martyrs Day, which was also declared as the Kashmir Solidarity Day. Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi, Defence Minister Pervaiz Khattak and Kashmir Committee Chairman Syed Fakhar Imam also accompanied the prime minister. The prime minister was briefed on the ongoing situation on the LoC. Prime Minister Imran Khan also interacted with local victims of the Indian Ceasefire Violations (CFVs). Later, the prime minister also interacted with the troops. Talking to the families of the martyrs and injured, Prime Minster Imran Khan lauded their decades of resilience. “Indian deliberately targeting unarmed civilians in Azad Jammu and Kashmir and continued siege of innocent Kashmiris in Indian Occupied Jammu and Kashmir (IOJ&K) are worst examples of the human rights violations,” he said. Prime Minister Imran Khan reiterated that Pakistan firmly stands with Kashmiris for their right to self-determination. “While our current efforts are to expose fascist Indian regime to the world, our Armed Forces remain fully capable and prepared to thwart any Indian misadventure or aggression,” he declared.
