Pakistan PM Imran Khan is on a calling spree and hell-bent of raising the Kashmir issue with global leaders. After Norway and Denmark, PM Khan called German Chancellor Angela Merkel and discussed India’s unilateral actions aimed at altering the status of Jammu and Kashmir and changing its demographic structure.
During the telephone conversation, Khan informed Merkel that India’s actions were in direct contravention of United Nations Security Council (UNSC) resolutions, international laws and its own solemn commitments, said a press release from the PM Office.
“The Prime Minister stressed the dire human rights situation in Jammu and Kashmir, including complete lockdown, blackout on all forms of communication and a severe shortage of food and medicines. He emphasised that intensified Indian repression could result in a massive loss of Kashmiri lives, which must be prevented at all costs,” it added.
Khan also informed Merkel about concerns over some false flag operation staged by India or some other ill-conceived step at the Line of Control (LoC) to divert the world’s attention.
“Khan emphasized that India’s actions had serious implications for peace and security in the region and the international community had the responsibility to act urgently,” said the press release.
Chancellor Merkel stated that Germany was closely observing the situation. She underlined the importance of de-escalation of tensions and the resolution of issues peacefully. The two leaders agreed to continue to work together for peace and stability in the region.
