Normalising relations with India would be a major ‘betrayal’ to Kashmiris: Pak PM Imran Khan

- Advertisment -

Prime Minister of Pakistan Imran Khan on Sunday said that Pakistan could not improve its trade with India “at the cost of the blood of the Kashmiris spilt by India”.

He stressed that any normalisation with New Delhi under the current circumstances would be a major “betrayal” to the people of the occupied territory, reported Dawn.

Khan made these remarks during a live Q&A session with public.

“I tried since the first day after coming into power that we have [friendly] relations with India and the issue of Kashmir is resolved through dialogue but [considering] the situation right now, if we normalise relations with India at this time we will be doing a major betrayal with the people of Kashmir,” Khan said.

He added that re-establishing ties at the moment would be tantamount to “ignoring all their struggle and the more than 100,000 Kashmiris martyred”.

The Pakistani premier added that talks could be held and a roadmap to solve the Kashmir issue could be devised if India took back its actions of August 5, 2019.

In August 2019, India scrapped the Article 370 its constitution thus thus revoked Jammu and Kashmir’s special autonomy.

Khan also said that it was Pakistan’s duty to bring the issue of Jammu and Kashmir to the UN platform with more vigour.

The Pakistan Prime Minister also said that the Palestinian conflict is similar to the Kashmir conflict.

He said that there were only two end results to the issue: either a type of “ethnic cleansing” similar to that seen in Spain of Muslims and Jews, which he said couldn’t happen due to the world’s attention and increasing awareness about the issue, or a two-state solution.
