Islamabad: On September 24, Prime Minister Imran Khan will deliver a virtual speech to the United Nations General Assembly’s 76th session, focusing on the developing situation in Afghanistan and the Kashmir problem.
Pakistan’s UN Ambassador Munir Akram explained Islamabad’s position on the session, saying, “We will participate fully in the General Assembly session.”
“Building resilience through hope – to recover from COVID-19, rebuild sustainability, react to the demands of the earth, protect people’s rights, and reinvigorate the United Nations” is the theme for this year.
Considering that the world is facing multiple challenges, including the COVID-19 pandemic, Pakistan’s UN Ambassador explained the devastating impact on developing countries’ economies, and the ever-increasing threat of frequent climate disasters.
Akram also noted that these threats coincide with rising tensions between great powers, particularly the United States and China, a new arms race, and persistent and proliferating conflicts in the Middle East, Africa, and South America.
“Pakistan’s policy statement”, Akram said, “is expected to make known Islamabad’s perspective on significant global economic and political issues.”
In addition, Prime Minister Khan’s speech will address the dire situation in Indian occupied Jammu and Kashmir, as well as the rapidly changing scenario in Afghanistan.
