Munir Akram's Exclusive Interview With PTV: UNGA Session To Help Pakistan Present Stance On Core Global Issues

Pakistan's permanent representative at the United Nations Ambassador Munir Akram says the 78th session of UNGA will help Pakistan present its viewpoint on the core world issues including Kashmir issue, Afghan Crisis, Islamophobia, Middle East Tensions, Environment and Economy.

In an exclusive interview with PTV Correspondent Anwaar ul Hassan, the Ambassador said this is critical time in world's history as tensions have increased in Asia among big powers and due to covid and climate change the economic situation of Asian states has worsened.

He said as a developing country, our focus at this world forum will be to ensure financial commitments from Northern countries for the developing states, which are facing climate impacts.

The Ambassador said the presence of Prime Minister Anwaar ul Haq Kakar at this world forum and his meeting with the business community will help attract foreign investment.

He said we will reaffirm our longstanding position on Kashmir that it should be resolved on the basis of UN Security Council’s Resolutions.

To a question regarding sustainable development goals, the ambassador said since the creation of these goals we have incorporated them in our development plans.
