Pakistan submits dossier to UN to declare India an eco-terrorist
ISLAMABAD (92 News) – Pakistan has handed over a dossier to the United Nations Environment Program in which it has pleaded to declare India an eco-terrorist in its attack on 26th of last month.
The dossier was presented by Advisor to Prime Minister Malik Amin Aslam at the direction of Prime Minister.
According to the document, Indian military aircraft had dropped their payload in a ‘reserve’ forest before hastily fleeing back after an intrusion into Pakistan’s territory.
The act has clearly violated the Articles 35(3) and 55(1) of Protocol 1 (Additional Protocol) of the Geneva Convention of August 12 – 1949 that prohibits warfare that may cause widespread, long term and severe damage to the natural environment. The Indian act caused damage to environmental assets of Pakistan.
Advisor to PM Malik Amin Aslam said the purpose of this document is to let the world know that Pakistan is serious in protecting its environment.
The complaint also urges the international community to ask New Delhi to compensate over causing damages to its natural assets, especially trees and forests.
