Imran dials Trump, other UNSC members on Kashmir

By The Assam Tribune

ISLAMABAD/NEW YORK, Aug 16 - With Pakistan being kept out of the UN Security Council deliberations on Kashmir, its Prime Minister Imran Khan on Friday dialled the US and was also trying to reach out to the other members of the Permanent Five (P-5), in order to present its case before the UNSC before it meets later in the day to discuss the Kashmir issue.

In his talks with Trump, Khan voiced his concerns over India�s �illegal� move in Kashmir.

The UNSC is to hold a behind-closed-doors meeting on Kashmir, despite Islamabad lobbying for a formal session in which it could present its case. The UNSC scheduled a closed-door consultation on �India/Pakistan� at the insistence of China, Pakistan�s all-weather ally.

In a televised statement, Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi said the premier has reached out to four of the five permanent members of the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) over the Kashmir issue.

�We are also trying to contact the French President so that his country understands our position,� he added.

Tensions have escalated between New Delhi and Islamabad following India�s decision to revoke Article 370 of its Constitution which granted special status to Jammu and Kashmir.

According to Qureshi, Khan had spoken with four of the five permanent members of the UN Security Council (UNSC) on the situation in Kashmir.

�Pakistan had presented its stance to the Prime Minister of Britain, President Trump, Foreign Minister of Russia. We have had direct contact with four of the five P-5 members. They are aware of Pakistan�s stance,� Qureshi added. � IANS
