Allow journalists to access human rights abuse in Kashmir: Imran Khan

Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan has said that a just settlement of the Kashmir issue in accordance with the UN resolutions and the wishes of the Kashmiri people remained a prerequisite for durable peace and stability in South Asia.

Khan made the remarks while talking to the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation’s (OIC) Special Envoy for Jammu and Kashmir, Yousef Aldoubeay, who called on him along with Assistant Secretary-General for Humanitarian Affairs Tarig Bakhit and other senior members of the OIC delegation.

Prime Minister Khan reiterated that a just settlement of Kashmir in accordance with the UN resolutions and the wishes of the Kashmiri people remained a prerequisite for durable peace and stability in South Asia.

Khan also asked for access to the human rights organizations and media to Jammu and Kashmir to probe the alleged human rights abuses, the PM Office said in a statement.

He alleged that the unilateral actions of India since August 5, 2019, were aimed at disenfranchising the Kashmiris and altering the demographic structure.

On August 5, 2019, India announced the withdrawal of the special powers of Jammu and Kashmir and its decision to bifurcate the state into two union territories.

India has told the international community that the scrapping of Article 370 was its internal matter.

India has told Pakistan that it desires normal neighborly relations with Islamabad in an environment free of militancy, hostility, and violence.
