Pakistani top envoy at UN lash out against India at the UN General Assembly

Pakistan's Permanent Representative Ambassador to the United Nations Munir Akram on Monday said that India does not even qualify for a seat on the 15-member United Nations Security Council (UNSC) because the state has violated the UN's resolution on Indian Illegally Occupied Jammu and Kashmir (IIOJK).

The ambassador was speaking at the UN General Assembly in New York.

Reaffirming Pakistan's resistance against the addition of permanent members in the UNSC, Akram made a reference to India without naming it and said that the "South Asian country" has waged 20 wars since independence and fomented terrorism and instability across the region, especially in Pakistan.

"We have clear and ample evidence of this state-sponsored terrorism," the Pakistani envoy told the 193-member Assembly.
