The prime minister stated this while talking to Sheikh Abdullah Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Foreign Minister of the United Arab Emirates and Adel Al Jubeir, Minister of State of Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, who called on him in Islamabad on Wednesday.
The main focus was on the situation arising from India’s illegal and unilateral actions in Indian occupied Jammu & Kashmir (IOJ&K). The prime minister highlighted Pakistan’s deep concern over the worsening human rights and humanitarian situation in IOJ&K because of the month-long complete lockdown and communications blackout in the occupied territory.
Earlier, in a rare move, a single aircraft carried the Sheikh Abdullah Bin Zayed and Adel Al Jubeir to Islamabad in what Pakistani authorities said was a symbolic show of unity.
Minutes before the diplomats' plane touched down, Pakistan army spokesman Maj. Gen. Asif Ghafoor said the military will "fight to the last bullet and the last soldier" if all peaceful options fail to resolve the Kashmir issue. He spoke at a press conference in the garrison city of Rawalpindi.
The two diplomats held talks with Imran Khan and Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi. A statement released after the meetings said Saudi Arabia and the UAE "would remain engaged to help address the current challenges, defuse tensions, and promote an environment of peace and security." Qureshi had said on Tuesday that the diplomatic visit followed direct appeals from Imran Khan.
They were also set to meet with country's army chief, Gen. Qamar Javed Bajwa.
