Islamabad: Prime Minister Imran Khan, conceding his defeat after failing to get "expected" support from the international community over Kashmir issue, has said Kashmir has been made a part of the country after the abrogation of Article-370.

In an exclusive interview to Russia Today that aired on Friday, Khan said: "...India has annexed Kashmir, so it is no longer a disputed territory as far as India is concerned. They have made it a part of India."

Claiming that trade and markets have blocked and prevented the world to react over the Kashmir issue, the Pakistan PM said, he expected the world to react much more than it has, while accusing the Indian government of violating the Simla agreement.
The Pak Prime Minister also vented his frustration by launching attacks against Prime Minister Narendra Modi-led government and RSS.
The Pakistan PM while reiterating the threat of a possible nuclear war between India and Pakistan also said that the consequences of India’s actions will go way beyond its borders and the subcontinent.

“This is now going to become a nuclear hotspot. If it becomes the flashpoint of conflict between India and Pakistan, this will be the first time the two nuclear arm countries come face to face," Khan said.

When asked whether he is planning to raise the Kashmir issue in United Nations General Assembly, Khan said he would apprise the world and countries about the condition in India.

Pakistan interior minister Brig Ijaz Ahmed Shah, who blamed Pakistan "ruling elite" including Khan for "destroying" the image of the country, a few days ago, had made similar remarks that Islamabad has failed to get support from the international community over its stand on Kashmir issue.

A day earlier, Pakistan Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi, during a UNHRC session in Geneva, accused India of transforming Jammu and Kashmir into the largest "caged prison in this planet" after the abrogation of Article 370.

India rejected Qureshi's allegations and hit back saying a "fabricated narrative" on Jammu and Kashmir has come from "the epicentre of global terrorism" and from a nation, which conducts cross-border terrorism as a form of 'alternate diplomacy'.
Pakistan has found itself isolated after being snubbed at the United Nations, as well as by countries like the United States, France, and Russia and has been left red-faced after its desperate attempts to internationalise the Kashmir issue fell flat. 
Though Pakistan has been trying to internationalise the issue, India's decision has been hailed internationally with several countries calling the move as India's internal matter.

Pakistan has approached various world leaders, including Abu Dhabi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Saudi Arabia's Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman, French President Emmanuel Macron and the Jordanian King Abdullah II to seek their interventions into the issue, but in vain.
However, Pakistan has been told to engage bilaterally with India to end tensions. 
India has repeatedly made it clear that talks with Pakistan are only possible after Islamabad stops sponsoring terror.
