New Delhi: Patting Pakistan's back for 'successfully internationalising Kashmir issue', Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan on Monday said that the United Nations for the first time since 1965 convened a meeting on the tensions and international media also covered the matter. He further said that he will raise the issue at every international forum, including at the UN General Assembly.

"We have succeeded in internationalising the issue of Kashmir, we talked to world leaders and embassies. UN for the first time since 1965, convened a meeting on Kashmir issue. Even international media has picked it up," Khan said addressing the nation.

Khan's address to the nation came after Prime Minister Narendra Modi, during his meeting with US President Donald Trump on the sidelines of the G7 Summit in France on Monday, categorically rejected any scope for third party mediation between India and Pakistan on Kashmir.

Pakistan has come out in protest over the recent developments in Jammu and Kashmir and has even tried to drum up global support on the issue, with Khan dailing US president Donald Trump and Pakistan Senate Chairman cancelling visit to the Gulf nation after UAE honoured PM Modi with its highest civilian award the 'Order of Zayed'.

Tensions between India and Pakistan spiked after India abrogated provisions of Article 370 of the Constitution to withdraw Jammu and Kashmir's special status and bifurcated it into two Union Territories. India, however, has categorically told the international community that the scrapping of Article 370 was an internal matter and also advised Pakistan to accept the reality.

During Modi's bilateral meeting with US President Donald Trump on the sidelines of the G7 Summit in France on Monday, the Prime Minister categorically rejected any scope for third party mediation between India and Pakistan on Kashmir, saying the two countries can discuss and resolve all issues bilaterally and "we don't want to trouble any third country."

On his part, Trump said he and Modi spoke about Kashmir "at great length" on Sunday night and he feels that both India and Pakistan can resolve it on their own. "We spoke last night about Kashmir, the Prime Minister really feels he has it (situation) under control. They speak with Pakistan and I'm sure that they will be able to do something that will be very good," Trump said.
