Kashmir is back in the limelight again as the Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan is set to address a UN session. A foreign office spokesperson revealed that “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 General Assembly on Friday, 25th September.” The spokesperson further added that that, “… Jammu and Kashmir dispute will certainly be an important component of the Prime Minister’s UNGA address. Let me reiterate that the Jammu and Kashmir dispute continues to remain a Foreign Policy priority for Pakistan.”
Indian Army admits to killings
In related news, the Indian army admitted to wrongdoing by its soldiers in the murder of three cousins back in July 18. According to the statement soldiers on the operation had “exceeded” their powers and “contravened” the guidelines governing military conduct in Kashmir. ‘Disciplinary proceedings’ would be held against those responsible according to army spokesperson Rajesh Kalia. The incident has found its likeness shared by other episodes of extra judicial killings of locals staged as terrorists by the army officials.
