While addressing the gathering he also said that Pakistan and U.S. should further strengthen its relationship, despite all the differences between the two countries. However, Abbasi said, "We don't foresee any political or military role for India in Afghanistan". According to the Pakistani leader, any intervention of India will only complicate the situation rather than resolving it.

In the previous speech on the Afghanistan efforts, President Trump had asked India "to help us more with Afghanistan" saying that a "critical part of the South Asia strategy for America is to further develop its strategic partnership with India - the world's largest democracy and a key security and economic partner of the US". Both the parties discussed issues relating to bilateral relationships as well as the peace and stability in Afghanistan.

While answering a question about India, Abbasi said that India poses a threat to Pakistan's sovereignty.

Addressing the OIC Contact Group meeting at the United Nations headquarters, PM Abbasi assured the OIC that it would have Pakistan's "firm and abiding support to this virtuous cause".

PM Abbasi also briefed the UN Secretary-General about ceasefire violations by Indian security forces along LoC and said there had been around 6,00 violations this year alone.

The Pakistan PM alleged that "Indian occupation forces there (in Kashmir) have committed atrocities which are really beyond belief" and that his country expects the world community to take notice of those atrocities. "We may have difference of opinion, especially based on the modalities of how we operate, but we want to work with the USA to counter this menace of terrorism", the prime minister said.
