Imran UN address Kashmir

According to Foreign Office, the Prime Minister Imran Khan’s address to the UN General Assembly on September 25 would focus on the Kashmir dispute.

“Due to restrictions imposed by the local government in New York, there will be no in-person high-level participation from outside. Prime Minister Imran Khan will address the United Nations General Assembly on Friday, 25th September,” Zahid Hafeez Chaudhry the Foreign Office spokesman said in the weekly media briefing.

Hafeez Chaudhry further said “Jammu and Kashmir dispute will certainly be an important component of the Prime Minister’s UNGA address. Let me reiterate that Jammu and Kashmir dispute continues to remain a Foreign Policy priority for Pakistan”.

The United Nations General Assembly session will start from Tuesday, September 22.

The latest General Assembly session is the 75th session and unique in its own way, as it is the first time in history that leaders from different states will not attend in person and other meetings will also be held online.

All the leaders from around the globe will send a recorded video statement, which is to be presented by diplomats from the respective country and then the recorded video will be played in UNGA Hall as live.

In his previous address at UN General Assembly the Pakistan Premier Imran also highlighted the suffering of Kashmiri people and the Indian actions of illegal annexing the occupied Kashmir territory.
