PM Imran Khan stresses US’ role for regional peace, stability

 Prime Minister Imran Khan on Saturday called on the United States to play its role in maintaining peace and stability in the region, as the situation evolves in Afghanistan and India continues its barbarity in occupied Kashmir.
The prime minister, according to a statement from the PM’s Office, stressed America’s role during a meeting with a four-member delegation of the US Senate — Senators Angus King, Richard Burr, John Cornyn, and Benjamin Sasse.
All four senators are members of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, while senator King is also a member of the Senate Armed Services Committee.The prime minister underlined that Pakistan values its long-standing relationship with the United States and is committed to expanding it in all spheres, particularly in the economic dimension, the statement said.
PM Imran Khan reiterated that a deeper and stronger partnership between the two countries was mutually beneficial and critical for the region’s peace, security, and prosperity, it added.
Speaking on the evolving situation in Afghanistan, the prime minister emphasised that Pakistan and the US “must have a deeper engagement” to promote the shared objectives of peace, stability, and economic development.
He particularly underscored the urgent need to support the Afghan people by taking all possible measures to prevent a humanitarian crisis and economic collapse.
Apprising the delegation about the continuation of egregious human rights violations in the Indian-occupied Jammu and Kashmir, the prime minister said the extremist and exclusionist policies of the RSS-inspired BJP were posing a threat to regional peace and security.
He underscored that, for its part, Pakistan remains ready to pursue measures that would reinforce peace, stability, and prosperity in the region, if the enabling environment was created by India.
