Pakistan’ Imran Khan says India ‘annexed Kashmir’; calls J&K ‘nuclear hostspot’


Islamabad, Sep 14: Pakistan Prime minister Imran Khan has said on Friday India has annexed Kashmir post revoking Article 370, removing special status given to Jammu and Kashmir, after he failed to receive ‘expected’ support from world community over Kashmir issue.

In an exclusive interview with Russia Today, being aired on Friday, Khan stated: “… India has annexed Kashmir, so it is no longer a disputed territory as far as India is concerned. They have made it a part of India.”

Khan said, “Sadly, I would have expected the world to react much more than it has,” further blaming the Indian government-led by Prime Minister Narendra Modi for breaching the Simla agreement.

He has further claimed markets and trade have ceased and secured the international community to respond to the Kashmir issue. The Pakistan prime minister also laid his anger by launching scathing attacks against Modi-led BJP government, according to ANI.

Reiterating his threat of potential nuclear war between two neighbours, Khan stated: “The fact is what India is doing in Kashmir is going to have consequence way beyond the borders of India, way beyond the subcontinent. This is now going to become a nuclear hotspot. If it becomes the flashpoint of conflict between India and Pakistan, this will be the first time the two nuclear arm country comes face to face.”

When asked him if he would raise Kashmir issue at the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA), Khan said he would brief the globe and nations about the pertaining condition in India.

Islamabad has been long trying to brief world over Kashmir issue and found itself fully isolated despite its desperate endavours aimed at internationalizing the Jammu and Kashmir issue.
