October 02, 2019

The Speaker of the House of Representatives of Malaysia Tan Sri Dato Mohamad Ariff Bin Md Yusuf, presently on a visit to Pakistan, called on Prime Minister Imran Khan today.

The Prime Minister appreciated Prime Minister Mahathir’s statements supporting just and durable solution of the Kashmir dispute in accordance with the UN charter and relevant UNSC resolutions. He said that Prime Minister Mahatir was a source of inspiration for all developing countries and the Muslim world.

Prime Minister expressed the desire to further deepen ties between the two countries.  He said that there was an immense potential to increase trade and investment between the two countries in particular for promotion and development of tourism in Pakistan.  

The Prime Minister briefed the Speaker of the House of Representatives of Malaysia on the recent developments in Indian Occupied Jammu & Kashmir (IOJ&K). He highlighted the dire humanitarian crisis and worsening regional peace and security situation due to India’s illegal actions. India was acting in complete disregard of international law and in violation of UNSC resolutions. India had deployed 900,000 troops in Indian Occupied Jammu and Kashmir to suppress the Kashmiri people. Since 05 August, an indefensible lockdown had continued with curfew, communications blockade, and severe shortage of food and medicines.  The Prime Minister stressed the imperative of immediate lifting of the curfew and other restrictions and the international community playing its role in facilitating a just and durable solution of the Jammu and Kashmir dispute.
