Pakistan vows to fight India’s ‘illegal’ Kashmir move
Pakistani PM Imran Khan has vowed to fight India’s decision to revoke Indian-administered Kashmir’s autonomy, including at the UN Security Council.
Mr Khan said the move was in breach of international law, adding that he feared ethnic cleansing by India.
The region remains locked down, a day after India announced the move.
The Himalayan region of Kashmir is claimed in its entirety by both India and Pakistan, but each country controls only part of it.
There is a long-running separatist insurgency on the Indian side, which has led to thousands of deaths over three decades. India accuses Pakistan of supporting insurgents – an accusation Pakistan denies, saying it gives only moral and diplomatic support to Kashmiris who want self-determination.
