Pakistan, in the United Nations, has underscored the need to respond to the main challenges from the coronavirus pandemic.

According to the details, Ambassador to United Nations Munir Akram who is also the President of the United Nations Economic and Social Council has called for a collective response to the world’s challenges for strengthening the world body.

While addressing the meeting to commemorate the seventy-fifth anniversary of the United Nations, he underscored the need to respond to three main challenges including:

  • Recovering from the coronavirus pandemic,
  • Reviving the realization of the Sustainable Development Goals, and
  • Avoiding the looming threat of a climate catastrophe.

Pointing out that prosperity and peace are interdependent, he said it is unfortunate that even as the world confronts the common challenges, the potential for collective action and international cooperation are being eroded by the revival of great power rivalry, old and new conflicts across the world.

He said Pakistan is well prepared and the world is listening and watching what is going on in India and the occupied valley.

The ambassador said that no pressure tactic by the Indian side will be helpful as the world knows and understands the truth about Kashmir.
