Pakistani PM Demands World to Address Crisis in Kashmir

HeadlineSep 25, 2019

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.
