Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan on Monday said India should take a move to resolve the Kashmir issue through dialogue. Khan’s remarks came a day after six civilians were killed in South Kashmir’s Kulgam district following an explosion at the encounter site.
The prime minister of Pakistan took to social media and said, “Strongly condemn the new cycle of killings of innocent Kashmiris....by Indian security forces.”
"It is time India realise it must move to resolve the Kashmir dispute through dialogue in accordance with the UN SC resolutions & the wishes of the Kashmiri people," he tweeted.
In a separate statement, Foreign Minister Shah Mahmmod Qureshi said the international community should take cognizance of the alleged human rights violations in Kashmir.
It is not the first time Khan has spoken about Kashmir.
MEA Raveesh Kumar meanwhile reacted on Khan’s tweet over dialogue with India.
“The remarks made by Pakistan’s PM in his tweet today are deeply regrettable. Instead of making comments on India’s internal affairs, Pak leadership should look inwards and address its own issues. Pak’s deceitful stand on dialogue, while supporting terror and violence, stands exposed to the whole world,” he said.
In September, New Delhi called off a meeting between the foreign ministers of India and Pakistan, citing killings of Indian security personnel by Pakistan-based entities and the release of Pakistani postage stamps "glorifying a terrorist and terrorism".
Three militants were killed Sunday in an encounter with security forces in Kulgam district, while six civilians lost their lives in a blast following the gunfight.
