NEW YORK: Pakistan’s Permanent Representative to the United Nations, Munir Akram has impressed upon the United Nations General Assembly President that international community must play its role to resolve the Kashmir dispute as it can become a flash point between two nuclear-armed states.

During his meeting with UNGA President Tijjani Muhammad-Bande, he said that situation in Indian occupied Kashmir, which has been under a repressive military lockdown for over four months is now further worsening.

Munir Akram apprised him that despite the lapse of one hundred days of India’s inhuman curfew and blanket restrictions on all forms of communications as well as systematic intimidation, normalcy has still not returned and fear grips the disputed state.

He also discussed in the meeting regarding Sustainable Development Goals with focus on the goal of zero hunger aimed at ending hunger, achieving food security, improving nutrition and promoting sustainable agriculture as well as measures to curb illicit financial flows.
