Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan on Friday warned that there could be a “bloodbath” in Indian-administered Kashmir, when the Indian government lifts its curfew in the region.
Khan made the remarks in his speech at the 74th session of the United Nations General Assembly in New York.
The situation in Kashmir has escalated in recent months, with the Indian government in August revoking the special status accorded to the region.
On his part, Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi avoided a mention of the Kashmir dispute, but called upon world leaders to unite in the fight against terrorism.
“For the sake of humanity, it is necessary to get together to beat terrorism. The world is changing and the technology of the 21st century, economy, security, connectivity and international ties up have brought a change. In the current situation, a divided world on terrorism will not bear any results,” PM Modi said.
UNGA 74 opened on 17 September, though the first day of the high-level General Debate was held on Tuesday and will run until 30 September.
