Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan celebrated Kashmir Solidarity Day on Friday and accused India that India was committing atrocities against the Kashmiris. Imran Khan tweeted that Pakistan has always stood for peace in the subcontinent, but it is India’s responsibility to create an atmosphere for it. He said if India shows the seriousness of a just solution to the Kashmir issue in accordance with the UN resolutions, then we are ready to take two steps towards peace.
