Speaking at the National Defense University in Islamabad, UN General Assembly President Vulcan Bozkar said that the corona vaccine is equally needed by rich and poor countries, and I pay tribute to what Pakistan has done to eradicate corona. The government’s efforts are yielding encouraging results.
Referring to Palestine, he said that the UN General Assembly convened a meeting last week on the situation in Palestine, the purpose of which was to resolve the Security Council’s silence and deadlock, the inaction of the United Nations and the Security Council on this important issue. It is hoped that the Security Council will also hear a unanimous voice on this important and necessary issue.
“Hundreds of Palestinians have died in blatant human rights abuses,” Bozkar said. “Pakistan’s foreign minister has expressed strong support for the rights of Palestinians. There is an urgent need for talks to end the Israeli occupation.” Negotiations are urgently needed to establish two independent states. The UN General Assembly will not sit idly by until peace is restored in the Middle East.
“I am well aware of the situation in Jammu and Kashmir. I understand what an ordinary Pakistani must feel about Kashmir. I have always urged the parties not to change the ground realities. I have always said that the disputed areas To avoid changing the status quo, the Kashmir dispute is as old as the Palestinian issue. As President of the General Assembly, I urge India and Pakistan to work for a peaceful solution to this issue because peace and stability prevail in South Asia. And prosperity depends on the restoration of Pak-India relations, so for peace and stability in South Asia, it is necessary to resolve the Kashmir dispute.
