Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan said he is confident that the international community will take note of the situation in Kashmir.
In an interview to CNN, Khan continued with his rhetoric and said there was "no question" of him meeting his Indian counterpart Narendra Modi after his government ended the special status of Jammu and Kashmir last month.
"There's no question of me meeting Prime Minister Modi after what he's done in Kashmir," Khan said.
But India has said that there is no question of resumption of talks with Pakistan unless it takes concrete steps to stop cross-border terrorism.
The prime minister said he had apprised top leaders of the world about the situation in Kashmir during his trip to New York to attend the annual session of the UN General Assembly.
Responding to a question, Khan said that prime minister Modi did not want any international mediation on Kashmir.
"He keeps saying it's a bilateral relation. When we try to talk to him, he says, it's a unilateral issue. So, we go around in circles," he said.
"But eventually, and this is my belief, this is what I think I've achieved from my trip here, I believe that the international community will move in. They will have to because this is going to become a flash point," he said, reiterating his warning to the international community.
India ended Jammu and Kashmir's special status by suspending Article 370 of its Constitution on August 5.
India's decision evoked strong reactions from Pakistan, which downgraded diplomatic ties and expelled the Indian ambassador.
Pakistan has been trying to internationalise the Kashmir issue after India withdrew the special status of Jammu and Kashmir on August 5, but New Delhi has asserted the abrogation of Article 370 was its "internal matter".
India has also said that there is no scope for any third party mediation on the Kashmir issue.
