Prime Minister Imran Khan, who is on Mission Kashmir in New York, will address UN General Assembly on Friday, drawing world attention to emerging humanitarian crisis in the Occupied Kashmir.
Imran Khan, while interacting with the Editorial Board of leading US daily the New York Times, said in his address, he will ask the United Nations to intervene to address this issue.
The Prime Minister asked that if UN does not speak about it, then who will speak about longstanding sufferings of the people of Occupied Kashmir.
Imran Khan said he would ask the United Nations to step in, warning that it is too risky to allow tensions to escalate between Pakistan and India as both have nuclear weapons.
He emphasized that it is UN’s job and it should intervene and send observers there.
He said India is behaving irrationally out of its arrogance and against its own longer-term interests.
He condemned India’s military clampdown in the Occupied Kashmir and he would appeal to the world body for help.
Imran Khan stressed the need to understand that situation in Kashmir can go horribly wrong.
Imran Khan warned that the situation in Occupied Kashmir is becoming dangerous and it is going to be a massacre, the moment New Delhi will lift curfew.
The Prime Minister said he is not optimistic that he would accomplish anything in his speech to the United Nations, at least not in the near term. However, he said at least the world will be aware about the impending genocide.
In an interview with MSNBC TV, Prime Minister Imran Khan said US President Donald Trump, being head of the most powerful country of the world with the leverage in the UN Security Council, has the clout to mediate between Pakistan and India over Kashmir dispute.
He said there is a huge humanitarian crisis brewing up in Occupied Kashmir as eight million people have been locked there for 53 days.
He said keeping in view such a precarious human rights situation, Pakistan expects President Trump’s intervention.
