ISLAMABAD - Pakistan China and Russia takes a unified stance against regional conflicts and counter terrorism at UN Security Council as all three Nations called for eliminating regional and subregional conflicts peacefully.

He was talking at the start of a ministerial-level debate in the United Nations Security Council in New York.
Shah Mahmood Qureshi said the cooperation between regional organizations and the United Nations is critical for combating the emerging security threats. He underscored the need for settling outstanding disputes in South Asia.
He said Pakistan has taken action to uproot the threat of terrorism and would continue efforts with its regional and international partners.
The foreign minister said it is important to seize the opportunities for peaceful resolution of outstanding disputes and collective endeavors for regional prosperity.
Taking part in the debate, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said more needed to be done to work together with regional and sub-regional organizations in order to maintain regional and international peace and security.
China’s Minister for Foreign Affairs Wang Yi said counter-terrorism is a shared responsibility for all countries. He said no country should link terrorism to a particular country.
He said promoting political settlements is the best option for addressing hot spot issues.
