New York : Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan has admitted that his country failed to create any pressure on India over the crucial decision of revoking Article 370 from Jammu and Kashmir. He also said that he is disappointed with the way international community snubbed his nation's call.

"(I am) Disappointed by the international community...There's no pressure yet on Modi," Imran Khan said, adding, "We'll keep putting the pressure."

Pakistan's Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi and Pakistan's envoy to the UN Maleeha Lodhi were also present at the press conference where Imran Khan spoke.

Both PM Imran Khan and PM Narendra Modi are New York these days to attend the United Nations General Assembly. 

Imran Khan also acknowledged India's economic stature and global prominence while theorising why Pakistan's narrative on Kashmir is being overlooked. "The reason is that people look upon India as a market of 1.2 billion people," he claimed.

Earlier this month, Pakistan Interior Minister Brigadier Ijaz Ahmed Shah had admitted that Islamabad has failed to get support from the international community over its stand on the Kashmir issue. "People do not believe us but they believe them (India)," the minister had said.
