Pakistan supports Afghan’s vital pursuit of peace, stability: Munir
November 28, 2019
NEW YORK (92 News) – Pakistan has expressed hope that the resumption of direct talks between the US and the Taliban would lead to a peaceful settlement in Afghanistan in the United Nations (UN). Permanent Representative of Pakistan to UN, Munir Akram was speaking in the UN General Assembly’s debate on the situation in Afghanistan. Ambassador Akram said Pakistan supports Afghanistan's vital pursuit of peace and stability. On November 26, Pakistan has challenged India’s qualifications for permanent or non-permanent membership of the UN Security Council (UNSC) at the UN. Speaking at UN General Assembly (UNGA) today, Pakistan’s Permanent Representative to UN Munir Akram said New Delhi was in blatant violation of 15-member body’s resolutions aimed at settling the decades-old Kashmir dispute. He said India had imposed a complete curfew and lockdown on eight million people for over a 100 days and it is perpetrating massive violations of human rights against them and against its own minority communities. Earlier, Pakistan showed deep concern over UN Security Council’s inaction to halt India’s violations of human rights and its resolutions in the Indian Occupied Kashmir (IoK). At the UN, participating in a debate on ‘The Role of Reconciliation in Maintaining International Peace and Security’ in the UNSC, Permanent Representative of Pakistan to UN Munir Akram underlined that the central purpose of the 15-member world body is to settle conflicts. Munir Akram said unfortunately, the UNSC has had uneven success in resolving threats to and breaches of international peace and security. He also said India annexed Jammu and Kashmir on August 5 in violation of the UN resolutions and placed the disputed state under a repressive lockdown. He said since then internet and phone communications are cutoff and thousand of Kashmiris have been arrested, especially young men.
