ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif will hold consultations with Hurriyat and Pakistan-occupied Kashmir (PoK) leaders on Sept 16 before leaving for the US to address the UN General Assembly, where he is likely to raise the Kashmir issue.

“Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif will come here in Muzaffarabad on Friday before leaving for New York. He will consult the Kashmiri leadership regarding his speech at the UN session,” PoK Prime Minister Raja Farooq Haider said.

He said the premier will hold separate meetings with PoK legislators and a delegation of the All Parties Hurriyat Conference, PoK chapter.

“The prime minister wants to take the Kashmiri leadership into confidence over the content of his speech to be delivered at the UN General Assembly session on September 21,” the Dawn News quoted him as saying.

Haider said the gesture would send a positive message across the Line of Control (LoC). Sharif is likely to leave for the US on September 17.
