ISLAMABAD (Dunya News) – Prime Minister Imran Khan will virtually address the UN General Assembly tomorrow (Friday).

In his weekly briefing in Islamabad today (Thursday), Foreign Office Spokesman Zahid Hafeez Chaudhri said the Prime Minister, in his speech, would share Pakistani perspectives on various regional and international issues.

He said the Prime Minister would once again raise the issue of the Jammu and Kashmir dispute.

In his broad address, the Prime Minister will also share about Pakistan’s success in dealing with COVID-19, its debt relief initiatives for developing countries, and Islamophobia.

Responding to a question about the Jodhpur incident, the Spokesman said the Indian government had not yet shared necessary information regarding the deaths of 11 Pakistani Hindus in Jodhpur, India under mysterious circumstances.

He once again asked the Government of India to provide the necessary information without further delay and to carry out a comprehensive and transparent investigation into the matter and immediately share his findings with Pakistan.

Regarding the baseless story in the Indian media about reforms in Gilgit-Baltistan, the Spokesperson said reforms at GB are an ongoing process, which includes political, administrative and economic reforms based on long-standing demands of the people in the area.

He said such reforms would continue in line with the needs of the Gilgit Baltistan people, and not after India’s illegal unilateral action on August 5, 2019.

The Spokesperson said regarding the Line of Control as part of a fictionalized story by the Indian media, Pakistan’s position remains clear and consistent. He said the final resolution of the Jammu and Kashmir dispute rests in fulfilling the aspirations of the Kashmiri people, determined through free and fair voting under the auspices of the United Nations. He says there is and shouldn’t be a change in this principled position.

Responding to a question, Zahid Hafeez Chaudhri said there was no presence of Al-Qaeda or its organized remnants in Pakistan. He said that during the war on terrorism, Pakistan carried out thousands of security operations against Al-Qaeda.

As a result of this security operation, Al-Qaeda has been eliminated from Pakistan, a fact which is also recognized internationally.
