Pakistan restated its call to the world to work in implementing relevant UN Security Council resolutions regarding the Jammu & Kashmir dispute, as the international community celebrated United Nations Day on Sunday.
Pakistan’s Foreign Minister, Shah Mehmood Qureshi, said that Pakistan is open to working with other UN member states to advance the noble UN Charter ideals for peace, progress, and security throughout the world.
“UN is the best largest inter-governmental organization to address the problems faced by humanity, including the contemporary triple challenge of the COVID-19 and accompanying economic crises and the threats posed by climate change,” he said.
Pakistan maintained a strong commitment towards multilateralism, with the United Nations playing a crucial role in promoting international security and stability, sustainable growth, human rights, and peace for all.
Qureshi in his message said that Pakistan is a firm advocate for international cooperation as it has, over the past two months, played an important role in helping to relocate diplomatic missions and international organizations as well as continuing its support for the UN to deliver and transit humanitarian aid to the Afghan people.
The UN Charter represents a collective commitment toward international law and peaceful coexistence, said the foreign minister. It encourages friendly relations between nations, which are based on the respect of the principles and self-determination of all peoples.
