Abdul Salik Khan at a seminar at the Pakistani Embassy in Jakarta, Friday (06/09). Abdul Salik added that as the largest Muslim majority country in the world, Indonesia has rightly assisted in resolving the Kashmir conflict because Indonesia has always paid major attention to the issue of Palestine which has also Muslim majority population.
“So we would like to inform you, we would like to need support from the people of Indonesia, who are friendly people, who are always standing against human right violations,” said Abdul Salik Khan.
