Pakistan PM Imran Khan rules out talks with India unless New Delhi reverses its actions on disputed Kashmir where a military siege and harsh communication blackout entered its 46th day on Thursday.
India has categorically told the global community that the scrapping of Article 370 was an internal matter and also advised Pakistan to accept the reality. Mobile phone services have yet to be restored. Those steps, he said, were in violation of the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) resolutions and worldwide law.
"If someone from Pakistan goes to India and he thinks he will fight in Kashmir. the first person he will be inflicting cruelty on is the Kashmiris".
The premier will discuss the "grave situation" in occupied Kashmir following the Indian government's decision to strip the region of its autonomy on August 5.
Highlighting the dire human rights and humanitarian situation in the held valley, the Prime Minister called for the immediate lifting of the lockdown and curfew - in place for 45 days - removal of restrictions on movement, provision of access to humanitarian organisations and respect for the rights and freedom of the Kashmiri people. "He will have acted as an enemy of the Kashmiris", Khan said during a speech in Torkham on the border with Afghanistan on Wednesday. "It will provide them with an excuse for torture and barbarism".
Tensions have spiralled since New Delhi's move on its side of the de facto border -- the Line of Control -- to change the status of the Himalayan territory, with Pakistan repeatedly likening Modi to Hitler and calling for global intervention.
India can not divert global attention from its crimes against the innocent people of Kashmir blaming Pakistan. "Pakistan will keep pushing this issue at all levels until it is resolved", PM Imran said.
