Abbasi vows unwavering support for Kashmiri people during AJK visit
MUZAFFARABAD: Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi on Wednesday said Pakistan will send envoys to six important capitals to highlight Indian brutalities in occupied Kashmir.
Talking to Hurriyet conference here today, the premier assured that the government, the people as well as all political parties will continue moral, diplomatic and political support to Kashmir cause.
The premier said he visited Muzaffarabad along with his cabinet to express solidarity with the Kashmiri people.
He said he has always emphasized the need for implementation of UNSC resolutions that called for granting right to self-determination to the people of Kashmir.
The premier said he himself highlighted the Kashmir issue at world forums, including the UN and the OIC.
Indian authorities on Monday shut schools and blocked internet services in occupied Kashmir, after deadly protests and gun battles left 20 dead and 200 injured.
Thousands took to the streets on April 01 to protest against Indian atrocities but Indian troops resorted to firing bullets and pellets on crowds who threw stones and chanted slogans against the Indian rule.
Doctors said the extent of pellet gun injuries was the worst they had ever seen since hundreds were wounded in unrest that followed the shooting death of charismatic Kashmiri separatist Burhan Wani in July 2016.
