In yet another attempt to meddle in India’s internal affairs, Pakistan today nominated 22 parliamentarians to raise the Kashmir dispute in the United Nations in September.
Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif today chose 22 special envoys and vowed to raise the Kashmir issue during the United Nation General Assembly session.
The PM said Pakistan would expose the abuse of rights in the ongoing violence in the Valley.
Earlier, India had warned Pakistan over its “deplorable meddling” and asked it to “vacate its illegal occupation of Pakistan-Occupied Kashmir”.
After Pakistan observed a ‘Black Day’ on July 20, following the killing of Hizbul Mujahideen commander Burhan Wani in an encounter with Indian security forces, India said that it strongly condemned the “encouragement and support” which “terrorists and their activities receive from Pakistan’s state”.
Meanwhile, Pakistan High Commissioner to India, Abdul Basit, today said that Pakistan is ready to discuss the Kashmir dispute with its Indian counterpart.
Addressing the media, Abdul Basit said, “You all know that we took a step towards having dialogue but that didn’t work out. We did send invite to India but that did not move forward. We do feel talks on Kashmir is needed.”
