Peace, stability in South Asia hinges on resolution of disputes between Pakistan, India: Munir

Islamabad, October 05, 2021 (PPI-OT): Pakistan has drawn United Nations’ attention towards the threat to international peace and security posed by India’s Hindutva regime’s move to impose a ‘final solution” in Indian Illegally Occupied Jammu and Kashmir. Speaking at the UN General Assembly’s First Committee, which deals with disarmament and international security matters, Country’s Permanent Representative to the world body, Munir Akram said Pakistan will preserve its full spectrum deterrence to counter any potential Indian aggression.

Ambassador Munir Akram, terming the Indian “fascist” regime’s actions as violation of the Security Council resolutions, called for plebiscite to enable the Kashmiri people to exercise their inalienable right to self-determination. The Pakistani envoy said New Delhi has financed, facilitated and directed state-sponsored terrorism against Pakistan and other neighbours and to camouflage its crimes, it resorted to the world’s most notorious disinformation campaign.

He said India’s oppressive policies are accompanied by the quest for regional hegemony and “great power” status. Munir Akram told the Committee that India has nuclearized the Indian Ocean; deployed anti-ballistic missile systems; acquired anti- satellite weapons; by spending 73 billion dollars only last year and that 70 percent of all this weaponry is deployed against Pakistan. He said Peace and stability in South Asia can be achieved through the resolution of the disputes between Pakistan and India.
