Pakistan former foreign minister, Hina Rabbani Khar's, old video has gone viral on social media. The video has Rabbani saying that Imran has made Pakistan 'a laughing stock'. Rabbani made these remarks some four months ago, in April, during a session of Pakistan's parliament.

"Our PM went to lengths to explain Japan and Germany are neighbours. Geography tells us that Japan is in East Asia and Germany is in Europe. He claims Japan and Germany were adversaries during World War 2, but history has it that they were both, in fact, collaborators," she is heard as saying.

"We are not worried about ourselves but we can no longer see you making Pakistan a laughing stock in the world. You can't expect us to support you when you make stupid statements," Rabbani continues."We cannot show our faces to the world anymore. If you're immature and need training in statecraft, first get yourself trained and then become an elected PM," she further adds in the video.

With Pakistan failing to get traction for its belligerent stand on Kashmir, Prime Minister Imran Khan said on Monday that he will raise the issue at every international forum, including at the UN General Assembly.

Khan’s address to the nation came after Prime Minister Narendra Modi, during his meeting with US President Donald Trump on the sidelines of the G7 Summit in France on Monday, categorically rejected any scope for third party mediation between India and Pakistan on Kashmir.

Prime Minister Khan assured the people of Pakistan that his government will stand by the Kashmiris till India lifts the restrictions in the Valley.

Outlining his government’s future strategy on Kashmir, Khan said: “First, I believe, the entire nation should stand with the Kashmiri nation. I have said this that I will act as Kashmir’s ambassador”.

“I will tell the world about this, I have shared this with the heads of state that I have been in contact with. I will raise this issue at the UN as well,” he said, referring to his scheduled address to the UN General Assembly next month.

Khan said he would highlight the Kashmir issue at the UN General assembly.
