Prime Minister Imran Khan on Sunday condemned the ongoing violence perpetrated by New Delhi in Indian-occupied Kashmir (IoK) following the martyrdom of 14 Kashmiri civilians.

In a series of tweets on the micro-blogging site, Twitter, PM Imran condemned the killing of innocent Kashmiris in Pulwama by Indian occupation forces, adding that "only dialogue and not violence will resolve the Kashmir conflict."

The premier went on to add that he would raise the issue of human rights violations by New Delhi and push forward the United Nations Security Council to fulfill its commitment to a plebiscite.
