If war breaks out world will be responsible: Imran

August 14, 2019 16:56


Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan on Wednesday vowed to become the voice of Kashmir and raise the issue at every global forum, including the United Nations, as he questioned the silence of the international community on the situation in the region.   

Addressing a special session of Pakistan-Occupied Kashmir's legislative assembly in Muzaffarabad, Khan said that if war breaks out between Pakistan and India, the world community will be responsible.   

"The world's eye is on Kashmir and on Pakistan...I will be the ambassador who raises Kashmir's voice at every international forum," he said.   

Khan, who was in Muzaffarabad to observe Pakistan's Independence Day, said Prime Minister Modi has "committed a strategic blunder, he has played his last card. It will cost a lot to Modi and the BJP. Because they have internationalised the issue of Kashmir."   

"Whatever was done during the curfew by India, we will tell the international community that you are responsible. Whichever forum we get, I will be the ambassador and bring up Kashmir at every forum," Khan said.     

Khan also said that Pakistan will respond with full force if India launches any aggression against his country.   

"The Pakistan Army has full knowledge...India has made a plan to take action" in PoK, he said.   "You take action and this is my message: every brick will be countered with a stone," Khan said. 

"We will respond to whatever you do, we will go till the end."   

"Our message to international organisations that were formed to prevent wars is that if this war takes place, you will be responsible," Khan said.   

He claimed that the whole world, including the entire Muslim population in the world, was looking towards the United Nations.   

"You will see the numbers in which the public will come out during the United Nations General Assembly in September," he said, referring to the upcoming annual session of the world body.
