ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Imran Khan in an interview on Thursday said that Kashmiris should be free to decide their fate, and not forced into the decision, ARY News reported.
Prime Minister Imran Khan sat down with a correspondent from German media and talked on an array of topics ranging from Kashmir, Afghanistan, India, and the country he was heading.
Discussing the illegal unilateral annexation of Kashmir at the hands of India, the prime minister said: “Let the people of Kashmir decide what they want. Pakistan is ready for a referendum or a plebiscite.”
The interviewer asks the prime minister about claims of human rights violations in Azad Kashmir which is currently under Pakistan’s administration and how does he compare the two disputed territories and situation of their respective residents.
Prime Minister Imran Khan replied: “Well, it’s very easy to find out. We invite anyone from anywhere in the world to visit the Pakistan side of Kashmir and then go to the Indian side. Let them decide.”
