Heads of governments from across the world addressed the 75th UNGA session, organized from 22 to 29 September 2020, virtually due to the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic.
PM Imran addressed the UNGA on 25th September 2020.
During the speech, the premier apprised the world with the brutish tactics employed by the Modi-led Indian government to suppress the freedom movement in the Indian Occupied Kashmir (IOK).
He said that India has upped its military ante against Pakistan in a nuclearized environment to divert the world’s attention from the atrocities in the IOK.
Pakistan’s army has so far exercised maximum restraint despite the Indian military committing numerous ceasefire violations along the Line of Control (LoC) and the Working Boundary.
He added that Pakistan’s government and people will continue to support their oppressed Kashmiri brothers and sisters in their legitimate struggle for self-determination.
South Asia can never achieve long-lasting peace until the resolution of the Kashmir dispute in line with the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) resolutions and international laws, said the premier.
While reminding the world about why Kashmir is described as a nuclear flashpoint, PM Khan called on the Security Council to implement its resolutions regarding the Kashmir dispute and play its role to avert a disastrous conflict between the nuclear-armed neighbors.
