Sharif raised the Kashmir bogey at the UNGA, calling Hizbul Mujahideen commander Burhan Wani a "young leader murdered" by the Indian forces. He also said Pakistan will continue to support voices in Kashmir for self-determination.

He also extended support to the demands of Kashmiri people for self determination and called on the UN Security Council to hold free and fair plebiscite.

"The Security Council has called for the exercise of the right to self-determination by the people of Jammu and Kashmir through a free and fair plebiscite held under the UN auspices. The Security Council must honour its commitments by implementing its own decisions," he said.

He further demanded an independent inquiry and a UN fact finding mission to investigate the situation in Kashmir.
