NEW YORK (92 News) – Pakistan’s Permanent Representative to United Nation in Geneva Khalil Hashmi has been elected as head of the Annual Meeting of States Parties to the Convention on Certain Conventional Weapons (CCW).
In a statement, Foreign Office spokesperson Dr Mohammad Faisal said that Pakistan’s unanimous election reflects recognition by the international community of the country’s longstanding contribution to promote international security through arms control instruments.
The FO spokesperson said that it was also an endorsement of Pakistan’s strong credentials in multilateral diplomacy.
“The CCW represents an important arms control framework that envisages prohibitions and restrictions on certain conventional weapons that can cause unnecessary suffering to combatants or affect civilians indiscriminately,” he said.
The statement also stated that the convention and its five Protocols strike a prudent balance between humanitarian concerns and legitimate military utility of certain categories of conventional weapons.
Dr Faisal mentioned that the states parties meet annually to review the implementation of the convention, as well as to explore the possibility of developing additional Protocols on new weapon systems of concern.
The FO spokesperson maintained that this year’s annual meeting will address several important issues including the role of autonomous weapons and the financial sustainability of the convention.
