ISLAMABAD: President of the 75th Session of the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA), Volkan Bozkir on Thursday said that the UN’s inaction on the issue of Palestine is hurting its credibility.
Speaking at the National Defense University in Islamabad, Bozkir shed light on various issues, including Palestine, the Kashmir Issue, and the coronavirus pandemic.
“Inaction on the issue of Palestine, which is a grave matter, is damaging the credibility of the United Nations and the Security Council,” Bozkir said, adding that it is hoped that the Security Council will also hear a unanimous vote on this important and necessary issue.
“Hundreds of Palestinians have been killed in blatant human rights abuses,” Bozkir said. “Negotiations are urgently needed to establish two independent states. The UN General Assembly will not sit idly until peace is restored in the Middle East,” he said.
