PM Imran Khan to address UN General Assembly session on next Friday
ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Imran Khan will address the UN General Assembly session on Friday next.
Addressing weekly news briefing in Islamabad on Friday, Foreign Office Spokesperson Zahid Hafeez Chaudhri said due to restrictions imposed by the local administration in New York, there will be no in-person high-level participation from outside.
He said the General Debate of the 75th Session of the UN General Assembly will commence on Tuesday.
The spokesperson said the foreign minister will participate virtually in the High Level Meeting of the General Assembly to commemorate the 75th Anniversary of the United Nations.
He will also participate in other high level engagements.
The Spokesperson said Pakistan welcomes the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Michelle Bachelete`s reiteration of serious concerns on unabated violence in Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, including indiscriminate use of pellet guns on civilians.
He said Pakistan strongly condemns continued Indian attempts to illegally change the demographic structure of Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir.
He said, as reported, Indian authorities have distributed over 1.68 million domiciles to non-Kashmiris.
The spokesperson said the Indian actions are in clear violation of the UN Security Council Resolutions and international law, including the 4th Geneva Convention.
