Special Assistant to the Prime Minister (SAPM) on Information and Broadcasting Firdous Ashiq Awan has on Saturday emphasized that Pakistan will not hold talks with India until it lifts curfew in the occupied valley.
The Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) leader addressed a press conference in Sialkot and affirmed that Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan will effectively present the stance of oppressed Kashmiris – who are victims of worst form of Indian terrorism – while addressing the United Nations General Assembly.
Imran Khan will shake the world conscience on Kashmir dispute as well as present enlightened, moderate and progressive face of Pakistan before the world community, she commented.
Firdous Ashiq Awan reiterated that the government will not disappoint the nation in protection of its national security as well as the fundamental human rights of Kashmiri people.
She said Pakistan is a peace loving country and it is India which has put the regional peace and security at stake through its illegal and unconstitutional steps in the occupied valley.
Firdous Ashiq Awan said that the Prime Minister Imran Khan during his visit to the US will also hold talks with different world leaders including President Trump and the presidents of Turkey and Malaysia, and expose the Indian state terrorism before them.
The Special Assistant said the upcoming session of the UN General Assembly is very significant in the context as the entire world is looking towards the world body as to how it moves forward to implement its resolutions and decisions.
She said the besieged people of occupied Kashmir have pinned great expectations with the UN that it will play its due role for the protection of their fundamental democratic, constitutional and religious rights.
Firdous Ashiq Awan said India whose hands are soaked in blood of innocent Kashmiris and has violated UN Charter and all international laws and norms cannot become permanent member of the UN Security Council.
When asked about the establishment of media tribunals, the Special Assistant said any legislation regarding the media will be brought after consultations with the stakeholders.
She strongly rejected the impression that the government wants to impose curbs on the media and curtail its powers.
