The minister's tweeted day after Prime Minister Imran addressed to the nation in his historic speech and took nation under confidence on the government's strategy regarding Indian-occupied Kashmir, and vowed that Pakistan "will go to any lengths" to support the oppressed Kashmiri people and also for the cause of Kashmiri people.
On August 5, Prime Minister Narendra Modi's government, through a hasty presidential order, dismissed Kashmiris from its constitutional rights for seven decades. The Occupied Kashmir was subject to an unlimited cut-off and elected politicians were arrested at home.
Over this all scene, Pakistan observed a 'Black Day' on Aug 15 in solidarity with the people of occupied Kashmir.
In the meantime, Prime Minister Imran has committed himself to raising the voice of Kashmiri on every forum across the world. “I will be the ambassador of your cause across the globe,” he said earlier this month.
