PM Imran Khan’s UNGA address on Sept 24 will focus on Kashmir issue, Afghanistan

ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Imran Khan will virtually address the United Nations General Assembly’s 76th session on September 24 in which he would focus on the evolving situation in Afghanistan and Kashmir issue.

This year’s theme is “Building resilience through hope – to recover from COVID-19, rebuild sustainability, respond to the needs of the planet, respect the rights of people, and revitalize the United Nations”.

Ecplaining Islamabad’s policy regarding the session, Pakistan’s Ambassador to the UN Munir Akram said, “We will participate actively in the General Assembly session.”

Noting that the world confronts multiple challenges – the COVID-19 pandemic, it’s devastating impact on the economies of developing countries and ever growing threat of frequent climate disasters, he said these threats coincide with rising tensions between the great powers, particularly the US and China, a new arms race and persisting and proliferating conflicts in the Middle East, Africa, South Asia and other regions of the world.

“It is expected that the focus of the General Assembly’s discussions will be on these global issues and on certain conflict situations,” the Pakistan envoy said.
