The purpose of the delegation was to evaluate the situation of the Kashmir valley. As the valley remains under siege for the past 47 days.
Pakistan has remained vocal against the atrocities that are being committed in the Valley. The people of the valley do not have access to basic necessities. Pakistani politicians and Parliamentarians have condemned Indian brutalities in Kashmir.
The Prime Minister of Pakistan has continuously asked the world for its help. Prime Minister Imran Khan on his recent visit to Saudi Arabia has informed his Saudi counterpart of the prevailing situation in Indian occupied Kashmir, the ongoing lockdown and communication blackout and a humanitarian crisis originating from these restrictions have paralyzed the life in the valley.
