Maleeha Lodhi presents letter to UNSC urging meeting on Iok
Pakistan’s ambassador to the United Nations Dr Maleeha Lodhi presented a letter from Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi to the Security Council asking for an urgent meeting on the grim situation in Indian-occupied Kashmir.
The letter was presented to UN Security Council President and Polish Ambassador Joanna Wronecka. The Security Council president will hold consultations with the Council members and fix a date for the meeting.
Meanwhile, Ambassador Lodhi began meeting the Council members again to update them on the situation in occupied Kashmir.
In another development, Poland’s Foreign Minister Jacek Czaputowicz, who is also in New York, said he hopes India and Pakistan can work out a “mutually beneficially solution” after New Delhi revoked the special status of occupied Kashmir.
