Imran Khan Interview with The New York Times – Kashmir Issue
On the other hand, the Prime Minister of Pakistan, Imran Khan has said that the UN should intervene in the Kashmir issue.
On Wednesday, the Prime Minister of Pakistan, in a meeting with the editorial boards of the US newspapers, the New York Times and the Wall Street Journal, dismissed that the international community was expressing indifference to the situation in Kashmir.
Talking to the New York Times, he said there was a risk of bloodshed in Indian-administered Kashmir and the international community could no longer remain silent. He said that in his address to the UN General Assembly, he would demand that the Indian-administered Kashmir intervene.
He said: ‘If the UN does not speak in this matter, who will speak?’
He said that India was acting irresponsibly which would harm its own interests.
According to him, some countries may not want to talk too much on this issue because of their interests with India.
However, he said that the UN would have to intervene to ease the growing tensions between Pakistan and India as both countries are also nuclear powers.
