Pakistan urges UN Chief to take steps to promote peace in South Asia
The Pakistani ambassador urged the UN chief to take steps to promote peace in South Asia.
Munir Akram also expressed alarm at the continuing extrajudicial killings in staged encounters and fake cordon-and-search operations, as well as arbitrary detentions and crimes against humanity by Indian occupation forces in Kashmir.
The ambassador also drew the attention of the secretary-general towards Indian Home Minister’s “callous” statement threatening to conduct so-called “surgical strikes” against Pakistan.
Pakistan, he said, desired peace with India but it would spare no effort to resolutely thwart any aggressive designs by India.
The Secretary-General expressed concerns on the worsening situation in IIOJK and promised to make efforts towards de-escalation.
