PM Nawaz to address UN General Assembly today
NEW YORK - Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif will address the UN General Assembly session on today (Wednesday) to highlight the core issues of national interest including Kashmir dispute, Radio Pakistan reported.

The premier is expected to brief the world body and the international community about serious human rights situation in held Kashmir by Indian occupation forces and the need to resolve the longstanding dispute.

The address would also expose conspiracies hatched by India against Pakistan, for which all eyes would be on the Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif at the UNGA.

On the sidelines of the UN General Assembly session, the Prime Minister will have three important bilateral meetings.

The prime minister is scheduled to meet Chinese Prime Minister Li Keqiang, President of Iran Hassan Rouhani and UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon.

The PM is likely to devote a large part of his address to the UN General Assembly for exposing Indian human rights abuses in the Occupied Kashmir. He will also urge the world body to intervene to enforce UN resolutions for a plebiscite in Kashmir.
