Pakistan’s Permanent Representative in General Assembly Ambassador Munir Akram has said that India does not qualify for a seat on UN Security Council.
The General Assembly debated reforms aimed at making the UN body more representative, responsive, democratic and transparent.
According to the details, Pakistan’s Permanent Representative Ambassador Munir Akram, while referring to India, said one country has waged 20 wars since independence and fomented terrorism and instability across the region, especially in Pakistan.
India — along with Brazil, Germany and Japan — has been campaigning for a permeant UNSC membership.

“We have clear and ample evidence of this state-sponsored terrorism,” the Pakistani envoy told the 193-member General Assembly.
Munir Akram said that “It stands in violation of UNSC resolutions in occupied Kashmir.” He added that India had deployed 900,000 troops to quell the Kashmiri people’s legitimate freedom struggle. In addition to this, he said that the settlers from outside Jammu and Kashmir were being brought in to transform the region’s demography. “It threatens aggression against Pakistan and resorts to daily artillery and small arms fire targeting innocent civilians on our side of the Line of Control (LoC) in Jammu and Kashmir. “This country has no qualification for a UNSC membership — permanent or even non-permanent,” the Pakistani envoy added.
