KUALA LUMPUR (92 News) – Prime Minister (PM) Imran Khan expressed his commitment that Pakistan and Malaysia both will work together to address the challenges facing by the Muslim Ummah.
Addressing a joint news conference along with the Malaysian counterpart Mahathir Mohamad, the prime minister said that impression of division between Muslim Ummah from Kuala Lumpur Summit is completely wrong.
He thanked Mahathir Mohamad for the standing by Pakistan on Kashmir issue and speaking against the injustices being perpetrated by Indian forces in Indian Occupied Kashmir (IoK).
India threatened Pakistan for supporting Kashmir cause
Imran Khan said unfortunately a very radical and extremist government has taken over India which has put the Kashmiri people in an open prison. He also regretted that India also threatened Pakistan for supporting the Kashmir cause and cut their palm oil exports from the country.
The prime minister mentioned said Pakistan will do its best to compensate for that by importing the Malaysian palm oil. He said that given the close affinity between the peoples of both the countries, there is great scope of further improving trade and economic relations between Pakistan and Malaysia.
PM to attend the next Kuala Lumpur Summit
Imran khan said the idea is to develop a much closer relationship and also doing joint ventures in the defence sector. He said that he would like to attend the next Kuala Lumpur Summit. He said this will not affect Pakistan’s relationship with other Muslim countries. He said the forum will help promote unity amongst the Muslim Ummah.
Muslim countries to educate about true teachings of Islam
He said it is important for the Muslim countries to educate them about the true teachings of Islam. He said we are working on a joint media that not only projects the positive image of Islam and fight Islamophobia but also educate the young Muslim generation about Islam.
