In his speech, Imran Khan is expected to raise the Kashmir issue once again. Pakistan has been trying to internationalise the Kashmir issue.

In this program, US President Donald Trump also shared the stage with PM Modi. After Houston, PM Modi arrived in New York where he is attending several bilateral meetings.
