The prime minister took his twitter and said, “I condemn India’s attack across LoC on innocent civilians and its use of cluster munitions in violation of international humanitarian law and its own commitments under the 1983 Convention on Certain Conventional Weapons.

“UNSC must take note of this international threat to peace and security,” Imran Khan said.

“It is time to end the long night of suffering for the people of occupied Kashmir. They must be allowed to exercise their right to self-determination according to UNSC resolutions. The only road to peace and security in South Asia runs through a peaceful and just settlement of Kashmir,” the prime minister tweeted.

Referring to US President Donald Trump’s offer for mediation in the Kashmir issue, which was rejected by India and welcomed by Pakistan, Prime Minister Imran Khan stressed that this was the time to avail mediation.

“President Trump offered to mediate on Kashmir. This is the time to do so as [the] situation deteriorates there and along the LoC with new aggressive actions being taken by Indian occupation forces,” said the premier, warning: “This has the potential to blow up into a regional crisis.”

Earlier, a meeting of National Security Committee (NSC) under the chair of prime minister is continued to discuss matters of national security in the wake of use of cluster bombs by India.

It is pertinent to mention here that India used cluster bombs in an attack on civilian population along the Line of Control (LoC). India violated the prescribed international laws, especially the Geneva Convention.”

According to the reports, the meeting will be attended by the services chiefs, intelligence officials and civilian leadership. The NSC session will also review the situation in Kashmir and Indian aggression and brutalities in the region.
