Prime Minister Khan said, unfortunately, that a very radical and extremist government has taken over India and put the Kashmir people in an open prison.
The prime minister regretted that India also threatened Malasiya for supporting the Kashmir cause and reduced its exports of palm oil from the country. He said Pakistan will do everything possible to compensate for that by importing palm oil from Malaysia.
