Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan used a speech marking Independence Day on Wednesday, August 14th to accuse India of planning military action in the disputed Kashmir region, which has long been a boiling point between the nuclear-armed neighbors, Reuters has reported.

India abolished the status of the administered part of the region, known as Jammu and Kashmir, on August 5 and has taken measures to silence widespread unrest by cutting communications and restricting freedom of movement.
