AsiaPakistani PM Imran Khan welcomes ceasefire, urged India to meet Kashmiris' demand acc to UNSC resolutions

After a hotline communication between India and Pakistan Director Generals of Military Operations (DGMO) submitted a joint statement on Thursday.  This was to preserve all agreements on a ceasefire along the LoC and other sectors.  This decision came into fruition at midnight of February 24th-25th.

On Saturday, Imran Khan, Prime Minister of Pakistan said in a series of tweets. He said, “We have always stood for peace & remain ready to move forward to resolve all outstanding issues through dialogue.”

The Pakistani Prime Minister Khan also prodded the BJP government to change steps taken by New Delhi in 2019 by changing the special status of Jammu and Kashmir and to take “necessary steps to meet the long-standing demand and right of Kashmiri people to self-determination” as per the United Nations Security Council resolutions.  He said, “The onus of creating an enabling environment for further progress rests with India.”

Troops fighting across the border have killed thousands over the decades, often killing civilians, through the use of weaponry, rockets, guns, etc. The Centre had told Parliament earlier this month that there were 5,133 ceasefire violations along the India-Pakistan border in 2020, which led to 46 deaths.

The Pakistani prime minister’s remarks came on the second anniversary of Pakistan’s retributive airstrikes after the Indian Air Force targeted a Jaish-e-Mohammed camp at Balakot in 2019.
