New York, Oct 18 (KMS): India violated United Nations resolutions as well as bilateral agreements with Pakistan when it annexed occupied Kashmir more than two months ago and brought in thousands of additional Indian troops to clampdown on the disputed state, Prime Minister Imran Khan has said, and reiterated his call on the world body to intervene.
“These 900,000 troops are not there (occupied Kashmir) to stop terrorism; (they’re) there to terrorize the population,” he said while responding to questions during an exclusive interview with CNN, adding thatthis would have implications for Pakistan.
“That’s why we want the United Nations to act,” the prime minister told CNN’s correspondent Max Foster in Islamabad.
The people of Kashmir, he added, want to exercise their right of self-determination pledged to them by the United Nations.
Replying to a question, PM Khan said he had tried for one year to have talk with the Indian leadership until August 5 when New Delhi abolished the special status of Kashmir and put the disputed territory under lockdown and curfew with communications cut off.
Thousands of Kashmiris and their political leaders have remained under arrest since then.
“What’s the point in talking… where do you start talking now,” he added.
