Restoring Kashmir’s special status only way to improve relations with India: Imran Khan

LAHORE — Imran Khan, former prime minister of Pakistan and Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chairman has said that restoring Kashmir’s special status is the only way to improve relations with India.

While interacting with foreign media at his Lahore’s Zaman Park residence, Khan according to PTI said, “India had revoked the special status for Kashmir. Now the only way forward in holding talks with India is first the Modi administration restores it.”

On August 5, 2019, the Government of India revoked Article 370 of the Constitution which gave special status to Jammu and Kashmir and bifurcated the state into two Union Territories — Jammu and Kashmir, and Ladakh.
