In his meeting with Naidoo, the Pakistan Prime Minister apprised him of the "deteriorating human rights situation" in Indian Kashmir.
Imran Khan, while voicing grave concern over the situation in Kashmir, lauded the role of Senator Graham in strengthening Pak-US ties.
He said a human tragedy is being witnessed in Kashmir due to Indian lockdown in the Valley. "Indian steps are a clear threat to regional peace and stability," he said.
He said the US can play a positive role in resolving the lingering Kashmir dispute.
Imran Khan also met a delegation of Kashmiri leaders from both sides of the Line of Control (LoC) led by Ghulam Nabi Fai.

He said it was essential to ensure that the Kashmir dispute is resolved according to the wishes of the Kashmiris and in line with the UN Security Council resolutions. IANS
