Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan on Monday, reiterating his country's complete support to eight million Kashmiris in Jammu and Kashmir, observed that Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi had committed a historical blunder by abrogating Article 370.

In his televised address to the nation, the prime minister said the whole Pakistani nation and its government would go to the last extent to support Kashmiris.

"We will go to every extent ... will stand with the Kashmiris till the last breath," he said, adding, "I ask every Pakistani to come out of their homes, offices, workplaces every week for half an hour and on the upcoming Friday from 12 noon to 12.30pm to express solidarity with the people of Kashmir."

He again warned that if India resorted to aggression, it would have far-reaching impacts on the entire world as the both countries possessed nuclear arms.

He said Pakistan's Kashmir policy was at a decisive point and he had apprised the world leaders about the plight of the 8 million Kashmiri people in J&K.

Taking the nation in confidence, the prime minister said his government came into power with the pledge to have good relations with all its neighbours as it believed that better ties were vital for uplifting their people from poverty, unemployment and to address shared issues of climate change and environment. But every peace move taken by Pakistan was frustrated by India with leveling of unfounded allegations.
