The Big Picture: Kashmir - Pakistan Isolated

Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan on Friday admitted that there are no takers of the Kasgmir issue from the international community. In an interview with DW, a German state-owned public international broadcaster, Khan said that there has been a "lukewarm response" to the Kashmir issue and said that "commercial interests are more important for the Western countries". Khan made the comments days after China and Pakistan held an informal closed-door consultation on Kashmir in the UN Security Council in New York, more than five months after India abrogated the special status of Jammu and Kashmir granted under Article 370 of the Indian Constitution in August. MEA spokesperson Raveesh Kumar on Thursday said that the overwhelming majority of the UNSC believed that the world body was not the right forum to discuss the Kashmir issue. On this edition of The Big Picture we will analyse how Pakistan has been isolated on the Kashmir issue yet again.
