Khan will be accompanied by several ministers.
Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan will celebrate the Independence Day of Pakistan (August 14) in Pakistan-administered Kashmir where he is scheduled to address the legislative assembly after India revoked Article 370 of the Constitution which gave special status to Jammu and Kashmir.
According to the Pakistan Prime Minister’s office, Imran Khan, accompanied by several ministers, will fly to Muzaffarabad on August 14 and hold an all-parties’ conference there. He will be presented with a Guard of Honour.
“The Pakistan PM will be travelling by helicopter for his one-day trip, along with other ministers,” the Prime Minister’s office said.
Besides, he will also hold meetings with other political representatives, including the All Parties Hurriyat Conference members and other leaders.
Pakistan Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi had visited Muzaffarabad on the occasion of Eid on Monday and had prepared the ground for Imran Khan’s visit.
“Pakistani nation and political leadership is united on the issue of Kashmir and one voice will be sounded on August 14 in support of Kashmiris,” Qureshi had said.
