Pak interference in the Abrogation of Article 370

Pakistan has been trying to raise the abrogation of Article 370 in various forums. The Indian government has time and again notified that the decision to revoke Article 370 is an internal matter. Imran Khan, the PM of Pakistan, has repeatedly threatened India. He went on to make bizarre declarations stating that he should be made Kashmir's ambassador. Khan had earlier threatened India of a nuclear war, notifying that such a war could have 'global ramifications'.

Pakistan is the only nation to oppose India's decision to abrogate Article 370. According to Pakistani Foreign Ministry, countries like Turkey, Saudi Arabia, Azerbaijan or any other Organisation of Islamic Coorporation (OIC) member countries refused to back Islamabad against New Delhi. UAE explicitly mentioned the issue of Kashmir an 'internal' matter. On the other hand, Kuwait, Qatar, Bahrain and Oman maintained their silence despite Pakistan's effort to involve the international community. US President Donald Trump also announced the decision of India a 'bilateral issue' stating that 'The Prime Minister has it under control' at the G7 Summit.
