Pakistan again calls for peaceful settlement of Kashmir dispute

file-photo-1476184763-1591Pakistan’s Permanent Representative to the United Nations in Geneva Tehmina Janjua deplores Indian hegemonic designs and calls for resolution of the Kashmir dispute.

Addressing at UN’s International Security Committee in Geneva on Tuesday, she said Pakistan’s security was fundamentally challenged by the introduction of nuclear weapons in its neighbourhood.

Tehmina Janjua referred to the Prime Minister’s address to the UNGA this year in which he underscored Pakistan’s resolve to maintain strategic stability in South Asia.

She said peace and stability in South Asia would not be possible without resolving underlying disputes including Jammu and Kashmir dispute, agreeing on measures for nuclear and missile restraint, and instituting conventional forces balance.

She said that Pakistan had always demonstrated its commitment to peace and stability in the region.

The Ambassador said Pakistan has positioned itself as a mainstream partner in the international non-proliferation regime as well as the global efforts to strengthen nuclear security and safety.

She said that a non-discriminatory and criteria-based approach should be followed for expanding Nuclear Suppliers Group’s membership to strengthen the non-proliferation regime in an equitable manner.
