Pakistan PM Imran Khan Dials Boris Johnson, Saudi Crown Prince Salman on Kashmir

Aug 08, 2019 08:42 AM IST World World

Islamabad: Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan on Wednesday called his British counterpart Boris Johnson and Saudi crown prince Mohammed bin Salman as part of his government's plan to inform the world leaders about India's decision of revoking Article 370 and withdrawing the special status of Jammu and Kashmir.

The Indian government on Monday revoked Article 370 of the Constitution that gave special status to Jammu and Kashmir and bifurcated the state into two Union Territories - Jammu and Kashmir, and Ladakh.

Prime Minister Khan discussed the latest developments in Kashmir in separate telephone calls with the two leaders, an official said.

As Khan was personally getting in touch with the world leader, Pakistan Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi is set to visit China to discuss the situation in Kashmir and ties with India, the official said.

Prime Minister Khan on Monday called Malaysian leader Mahatir Mohammed and Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.

Pakistan has decided to increase interactions with the international community to highlight the dangers of India's move to revoke the special status of Jammu and Kashmir.

It has also decided to take the issue of Indian action in Jammu and Kashmir to the UNSC.
