Pakistan's top official strongly hits out against Canadian Ambassador at UN
Pakistan's Ambassador to the United Nations, Munir Akram strong criticism of Canada's proposed amendment at the United Nations. Akram raised concerns about the amendment, which aimed to condemn Hamas for the October 7 attacks but did not address Israeli forces' actions against civilians.
During a meeting of the UN General Assembly, Akram expressed astonishment at the focus on naming Hamas without considering the scale of Israel's actions against the Palestinian people.
He emphasized the need for equity, balance, and fairness, which Canada is known for, in such condemnations.
Akram pointed out that the Canadian ambassador chose not to mention Israel's actions, which resulted in the deaths of 7,000 Palestinians and injuries to 177,000, while singling out Hamas for condemnation. He questioned whether this approach represented a fair and balanced perspective.
Senator Mushtaq Ahmad Khan lauded Ambassador Akram's speech at the UN, expressing support for his stance. During his speech, Ambassador Akram emphasized the importance of naming both sides, especially Israel, to maintain fairness and equity in addressing the situation.
