The minister urged the United Nations (UN) to take concrete steps for preventing bloodshed in South Asia.
While taking a jibe at the Indian premier, Rasheed said that Narendra Modi had used his influence to stop Muslims from being elected to the Indian parliament
He reiterated Pakistan’s support for the people of Indian occupied Kashmir and said that Pakistan will endorse the Kashmir cause at “every platform”.
The people of Indian occupied Kashmir continue to live under curfew and media blockade after the central government announced the revocation of the state’s special status through a presidential order on August 5.
