Islamabad: Pakistan's Prime Minister Imran Khan on Tuesday chaired a meeting of the Cabinet to discuss the situation in Kashmir.
The Prime Minister's Special Assistant on Information Firdous Ashiq Awan said that Khan informed the Cabinet about his decision to raise the Kashmir issue in the world and that he had become the "voice of the Kashmiri people".
"The entire nation coming out on the streets for the rights of the Kashmiris, it is message of 'Do more' for the rest of the world," she said.
During his address to the nation on Monday, the cricketer-turned-politician had announced that a 30-minute event would be held every week in Pakistan to show solidarity with the Kashmiri people. He informed the Cabinet about his decision to hold a "Kashmir Solidarity day" every Friday, which was endorsed by the Cabinet members.
Awan said the meeting also discussed options for the Prime Minister's address to the UN General Assembly in which he would "fight the case of the Kashmiri people".
"The Prime Minister has announced that, whether anybody in the world stands with Kashmir or not, Pakistan will stand by their Kashmiri brothers and sisters," said Awan.
