Pakistan’s ambassador to the United States Asad Majeed Khan on Wednesday (August 28) has said that the Kashmir conflict could lead Pakistan and India to nuclear war.
During an interview with the Wall Street Journal, a leading US financial newspaper, the ambassador said that the escalating unrest in the occupied Kashmir is a threat to peace and security of the world.
Mr. Asad urged the international community to show seriousness on the Kashmir situation that worsened following the abrogation of article 370 and 35A by the Indian government that gave special status to the valley. He further clarified that befitting response will be given to Indian Prime Minister (PM) Narendra Modi in case of attacking sovereignty of Pakistan.
“PM Imran Khan is expected next month to highlight the ‘gravity of the situation’ in Indian Occupied Kashmir where India’s crackdown has created a serious crisis,” ambassador Khan said.
“The prime minister will be most likely coming to the General Assembly session and participating in the (high-level) General Debate,” he said. “That will be an opportunity for us to highlight the issue and the gravity of the situation.”
