Pakistan People’s Party Chairman Bilawal Bhutto criticised on Tuesday Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi’s statement on approaching the United Nations Security Council, calling it ‘shameful’.
The FM earlier called the act of approaching the UNSC on the issue of occupied Kashmir a difficult one, saying that it will be susceptible to being vetoed by one of the permanent members.
Bilawal Bhutto said that he is quite disheartened by the foreign minister’s statement as it seems he will not put complete effort in the attempt. Bilawal said that before approaching the UNSC, passing such a statement does not make any sense.
Bilawal Bhutto expressed his solidarity with the people of Kashmir. “We will not celebrate Eid happily because of what is happening in Indian occupied Kashmir,” Bilawal said while addressing a press conference in the federal capital.
The PPP leader highlighted the problems faced by the Kashmiris and reiterated that the government should take the issue seriously and play a responsible role for national unity.
“The government should not give up on the Kashmir issue,” he said.
The chairman expressed his concern for the situation in Kashmir and stated that Modi is oppressing the Kashmiris. “We have to stand with them and fight for them,” he added.
Bilawal questioned Prime Minister Imran Khan’s intentions. He said the people of Kashmir waited for him for two days.
Earlier, Bilawal lashed out at Prime Minister Imran Khan for failing to see warning signs in Indian Occupied Kashmir, claiming that the government is naive in thinking it could resolve the Kashmir issue with New Delhi.
The PPP leader deemed Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi to have “blood on his hands” and is “playing with fire” after New Delhi’s actions in IoK.
