In New York, Imran Khan meets with Kashmir Study Group

New York, Sep 22 (TIWN) As part of his 'Mission Kashmir' to draw global attention on the issue, Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan has urged the Kashmir Study Group to highlight the situation in Jammu and Kashmir, which he said "poses a grave threat to regional peace and security".

Imran Khan met with the founder of Kashmir Study Group, Farooq Kathwari, who called on him in New York and both discussed the prevailing situation in J&K.  During the meeting, Pakistan Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi, Special Assistant to the PM Naeem ul Haq, United Nation (UN) Ambassador Maleeha Lodhi, Ambassador to the United States Asad Majeed Khan and other senior officials were also present.  Khan urged Kathwari to outline the issue of India's revocation of special status of Jammu and Kashmir, which Pakistan has termed as "illegal annexation", and the alleged human rights violations there, in order to "expose the real face of fascist Modi-led Hindu nationalist government in front of the world".  Kathwari had earlier served as member of the US President's Advisory Commission on Asian Americans.  Kathwari highlighted the Kashmir Study Group's earlier engagement on the Jammu and Kashmir issue and efforts for conflict resolution.  Imran Khan is New York on a week-long visit to attend the UN General Assembly session and hold high-level meetings with world leaders.
