May 8, 2019

Islamabad, May 08, 2019 (PPI-OT):Pakistan has been re-elected to the United Nations Commission on Narcotic Drugs (CND). Pakistan secured the highest number of votes – 48 out of 54 – from the Asia-Pacific Group. The Commission membership will be for a four-year term starting, 1 January 2020. Elections were held in New York at the United Nations Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC).
