Earlier on Friday, PM Imran Khan had virtually addressed the 75th session of the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA).
While highlighting grave human rights (HR) violations in the Indian occupied territory at the global platform, he had said that durable peace could not be achieved in South Asia unless the Kashmir dispute is resolved. He said that Pakistan supports the right of self-determination of Kashmiris and considered it their just right.
The prime minister said Pakistan continues to support a two-state solution – in line with the UN General Assembly and Security Council resolutions, within the internationally agreed parameters, and they are; pre-1967 borders, and Al-Quds Al-Sharif as the Capital of a united, contiguous, and independent Palestinian state.
The prime minister said Pakistan’s desire for peace in the region is also manifest in the efforts to promote a political solution in Afghanistan. He said that Pakistan fully facilitated the process that culminated in the U.S.-Taliban Peace Agreement on 29 February 2020.
