Sharif leaves for US with Kashmir top on UNGA agenda

With Kashmir on top of the agenda, Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif left for the US on Saturday to attend the 71st session of the United Nations General Assembly.

Meanwhile, Islamabad has strongly rebutted India’s stance on Jammu and Kashmir at the UN Human Rights Council, calling it “a travesty of history”.

Sharif, who will address the UN General Assembly on September 21, on Friday met Hurriyat leaders in Pakistan-administered Kashmir in Muzaffarabad to take inputs and take them into confidence, the Pakistani media reported.

On Friday, Sharif also met Army Chief General Raheel Sharif to discuss Indian intelligence agency, Research and Analysis Wing’s alleged interference in Pakistan. Sharif is likely to raise this issue during his address at the United Nations.
