Pakistan slams denial again by India’s presidency of UNSC to address meeting on Afghanistan

NEW YORK: Pakistan has denounced India, which as President of the United Nations Security Council, again blocked it from participating in the 15-member Council’s meeting held to ponder over the latest situation in Afghanistan.

Talking to reporters after the conclusion of the Security Council meeting in New York, Pakistan’s Permanent Representative to the United Nations Munir Akram said that Pakistan has a vital stake in the peace and stability of the war-torn country, where the Taliban have taken control of the government.

He said the Security Council has been denied an important perspective and vital input that could help restore peace and stability in Afghanistan and the region.

Munir Akram said India’s partisan and obstructionist actions are a manifestation of its hatred for Pakistan and its pique that its plan to continue the conflict in Afghanistan and thus continue to sponsor terrorism against Pakistan from Afghanistan’s territory is likely to be neutralized once peace is restored throughout Afghanistan.

Pakistan’s Permanent Representative said Pakistan also calls for urgently addressing the humanitarian situation in Afghanistan.
