Prime Minister Imran Khan slammed the West’s double standards on Kashmir and the Uyghurs as he prepared to visit China next week.
The prime minister was talking to the Chinese media. About West’s so-called criticism of China over the Uyghurs in Xinjiang, the prime minister said that Pakistan ambassador to China had visited the area and informed that such allegations were not true.
The prime minister said that the West did not talk about the Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir (IIOJK) where the worst human rights violations had been committed by the Indian forces.
“There is selective silence over Kashmir,” he said, adding the IIOJK had been turned into an open prison by 800,000 Indian troops, and such silence on Kashmir was deafening which was based upon double standards.
