At the United Nations, Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan called on world leaders Tuesday to address the crisis in Kashmir, warning India’s illegal annexation of the occupied territory could lead to a war between the two nuclear-armed states.
Prime Minister Imran Khan: “This is unprecedented. Eight million people in an open jail is unprecedented in this day and age. And then this nonsense that this is a part of India so the world should stay out. Just to remind the world, that there are 11 Security Council, U.N. Security Council, resolutions that recognize Kashmir as a disputed territory.”
Meanwhile, a magnitude 5.8 earthquake hit Pakistan-administered Kashmir on Tuesday. At least 25 people died, and more than 300 have been injured.
