Jordan to consult other states on Kashmir crisis, says King Abdullah II
ISLAMABAD - Jordanian King Abdullah II said on Wednesday that other countries would be consulted regarding the ongoing situation in occupied Kashmir.

King Abdullah said Jordan was closely following the developments in the valley, calling for de-escalation and peaceful resolution of the dispute through dialogue.

The Jordanian leader made these remarks as he had a telephonic conversation with Prime Minister Imran Khan.

Pakistan's premier made the telephonic call to highlight the deteriorating situation in the Indian Occupied Jammu & Kashmir.

The prime minister said India’s illegal and repressive policies in the valley had not only led to a grave humanitarian crisis but also endangered peace and security in the region.

Through its unilateral and fascist actions, he said, India was attempting to change the demography of the disputed territory, which was a blatant violation of the international norms and the United Nations Security Council resolutions.

The prime minister said the international community must take notice of the Indian excesses and raise their voice for the oppressed people of Indian Occupied Jammu & Kashmir.
