New York: Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif addressing 71st session of the United Nations General Assembly in New York on Wednesday night, has demanded a probe into the killing of “innocent Kashmiris” by Indian security forces and further said that his country will not curtail the military nuclear programme so as to maintain minimum nuclear deterrence against India.
“Burhan Wani, the young leader murdered by Indian forces has emerged as a symbol of latest Kashmiri ‘Intifada’, said Sharif glorifying the slain Hizbul terrorist. The Pakistani PM has also asked the UN to send a fact-finding team to investigate the ‘human rights violation’ and “extrajudicial killings” in Kashmir by Indian army.
Sharif also demanded UN-backed plebiscite and pitched for the demilitarisation of Jammu and Kashmir.
In a desperate bid to divert international glare from the Pakistani terror roots leading to Uri attack, Sharif indirectly hitting at India said that his country too is a victim of “externally sponsored” terrorism.
He further said that India is forcibly occupying Kashmir. “We want peaceful dialogue with India to settle all disputes”, said Sharif.
Pakistani Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif’s speech at UN is seen by many as the reflection of Pakistan Army’s view on Kashmir.
