ISLAMABAD: Pakistan’s Permanent Representative to the United Nations Munir Akram Monday stated that peace and stability in South Asia linked to the decision of disputes between Pakistan, India.
Speaking on the UN General Assembly’s common debate’s first committee, which offers with disarmament and worldwide safety issues, Munir Akram drew the world’s consideration in the direction of the risk to worldwide peace and safety posed by India’s Hindutva regime’s move to impose a “final solution” in occupied Kashmir.
“Pakistan will preserve its full spectrum deterrence to counter any potential Indian aggression,” he stated.
The “fascist” regime’s actions have been in violation of the Security Council resolutions calling for plebiscite to allow the Kashmiri folks to train their inalienable proper to self-determination, stated Munir Akram.
“It [India] has unleashed a most brutal reign of terror and oppression on the Kashmiri people – youth, women and civilians – and against its own 200 million Muslim minority,” the Pakistani envoy stated, including that it has financed, facilitated and directed state-sponsored terrorism towards Pakistan and different neighbours.
“To camouflage its crimes, it has resorted to the world’s most notorious disinformation campaign,” he added.
Noting that India’s oppressive insurance policies are accompanied by the search for regional hegemony and “great power” standing, regardless of its home political and financial disarray, Ambassador Akram informed the Committee about it’s huge militarisation, spending $73 billion final 12 months on the acquisition and growth of recent standard and non-conventional land, air and sea weapons methods.
“India has also nuclearised the Indian Ocean, deployed anti-ballistic missile systems, acquired anti-satellite weapons, and increased the range and sophistication of all its delivery systems,” he stated.
“Those States which so eagerly provide these advanced weapons systems and technologies to India must know that 70% of India’s weaponry and forces are deployed against Pakistan, not to serve its promised role as a counter to the rising Asian great power in the so-called ‘Indo-Pacific’ region. And, India has operationalised its dangerous doctrines of preemptive aggression against Pakistan.”
“Pakistan will do whatever it takes to preserve full spectrum deterrence to prevent and defeat any potential Indian aggression,” Ambassador Akram declared.
Peace and stability in South Asia, he stated, might be achieved by means of: the decision of the disputes between Pakistan and India, at the beginning; the upkeep of a stability of standard and strategic navy forces between Pakistan and India; and reciprocal measures for nuclear and missile and navy restraint between the 2 international locations.
“Pakistan’s proposal for a strategic restraint regime in South Asia remains on the table,” the Pakistani diplomat stated.
