ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Imran Khan on Wednesday urged the international community to push India into halting and reversing its illegal and aggressive policies and postures in occupied Kashmir.
He said this while talking to Saudi Foreign Minister Adel Al Jubeir and United Arab Emirates (UAE) Foreign Minister Sheikh Abdullah bin Zayed Al Nahyan in Islamabad, who called on him soon after their arrival in the country on a one-day visit.
The prime minister highlighted deep concerns over the worsening human rights situation in Indian Occupied Kashmir (IOK) because of the month-long complete lockdown and communications blackout in the occupied territory. He further underscored that India’s actions are a clear violation of United Nations Security Council (UNSC) resolutions and international law.
The premier also said that there is a genuine possibility that India might stage a false flag operation to divert world’s attention from its illegal actions and intensified repression of Kashmiris.
The prime minister added that Saudi Arabia and UAE have an important role in this regard. The visiting dignitaries said they were visiting Pakistan at the direction of their leadership. They reaffirmed the strategic significance of the relationship of Saudi Arabia and UAE with Pakistan.
They also acknowledged Pakistan’s role and efforts in promoting and maintaining regional peace and stability. They said that both countries would remain engaged to help address the current challenges, defuse tensions, and promote an environment of peace and security.

Addressing a press conference following the visiting dignitaries’ meeting with the premier, Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi said, “There is no doubt that Saudi Arabia and UAE are standing with us.”
“We are hopeful that both countries will not disappoint us. The ministers of both countries have listened to our stance on the situation,” he added.
