Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan said that like India, Pakistan too has nuclear weapons and if the Kashmir issues go to war, it will have global ramifications.
“We had complete intelligence that they were planning to do a false flag attack and blame it on freedom fighters in PoK and then launch a crackdown on people of the valley in the garb of counter-terrorism…. but we are fully prepared,” he said.
“Pakistan successfully internalised the Kashmir issue, which was taken up by the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) for the first time since 1965. The UNSC, however, held an unofficial discussion on Kashmir and suggested a bilateral route, which is in lieu with India’s stand,” said Khan.
“We won on the diplomatic front; we internationalised the Kashmir issue, talked to heads of states, their embassies [and] the UN Security Council called a session on Kashmir for the first time since 1965. We also kept raising this for the international media to report and they picked this up,” he added.
“Kashmir move was a ‘historic blunder’ by Prime Minister Narendra Modi and will pave the way towards ‘freedom’ of the state. We will continue to raise the issue on every global front and act as Kashmir’s ambassador,” he told.
