Reiterating Islamabad's demand for international intervention in Indian-administered Kashmir, Pakistani prime minister on Tuesday appealed to the "world's conscience" to act against the "illegal annexation" of the valley with New Delhi, APA reports citing Anadolu Agency.

On the World Human Rights Day, Khan condemned the "gross" human rights violations in Jammu and Kashmir, especially after New Delhi's controversial revocation of the valley's long-standing special rights last August, which sparked worldwide criticism.

Human Rights Day has been observed every year on Dec. 10 since 1948, when nations in the UN General Assembly adopted the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

"On Human Rights day we must appeal to the world's conscience, to upholders of international law & to the UNSC [UN Security Council] to act against the illegal annexation of IOJK by the Indian Occupation govt.," Khan said on twitter.

Condemning the Indian government's "siege" of Kashmir, he demanded "an end to the gross abuse & atrocities being inflicted on Kashmiri men, women & children by Indian Occupation forces in violation of all Int Humanitarian & Human Rights Laws."

"We salute & stand resolutely with the brave Kashmiris struggling for their right of self determination," Khan added.
