Prime Minister Imran Khan on Sunday reaffirmed his commitment to Kashmiri people on Youm-i-Ilhaq-e-Pakistan, the day when Kashmiris passed a resolution for accession to Pakistan.
Taking to Twitter, he said: “Today we commemorate the historic occasion of Youm-i-Ilhaq-e-Pakistan when Kashmiris passed a resolution for accession to Pakistan. We reaffirm our commitment to the Kashmiri people & stand with them in their struggle for self-determination.”
Prime Minister Khan maintained that Kashmiris’ right to self-determination is recognized by the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) and under international law. “We will continue to fight for justice for Kashmiris as they struggle against the brutal & illegal actions of the Hindutva Supremacist Indian govt in IOJK,” he said.
Kashmiris right of self-determination is recognised by the UNSC & under international law. We will continue to fight for justice for Kashmiris as they struggle against the brutal & illegal actions of the Hindutva Supremacist Indian govt in IOJK. I know that justice will prevail.

He expressed the optimism that justice will prevail one day.
In a video message on the 25th memorial anniversary of the Srebrenica genocide on July 11, the premier had expressed fear that a massacre akin to Srebrenica may happen in Indian Occupied Jammu and Kashmir (IOJ&K).
He regretted that 8,000 Indian troops have besieged eight million people of Kashmir. “It is important for us to learn a lesson from the Srebrenica massacre and the world community must never allow such things to happen again.”
