Foreign Minister, Makhdoom Shah Mahmood Qureshi, held a bilateral meeting with the Foreign Minister of Cote d’Ivoire, Marcel AMON-TANOH, on the side-lines of the United Nations General Assembly Session in New York today.
The Foreign Minister sensitized his counterpart on the prevailing dire human rights and humanitarian situation in Indian Occupied Jammu & Kashmir (IOJ&K). He said that the non-resolution of Jammu & Kashmir dispute had resulted in repeated conflicts in South Asia. He expressed the hope that United Nations Security Council would play its mandated role towards addressing the Jammu & Kashmir dispute as well as implementing its relevant resolutions that call for allowing the Kashmiris their right to self-determination.
He expressed the hope that as the member of the United Nations Security Council, Cote d’Ivoire would take steps towards a more responsive role of the Council in dealing with potential flashpoints.
The Foreign Minister also recalled Pakistan’s longstanding and strong political relationship with the African continent, especially the crucial role being played by Pakistan’s United Nations peacekeepers towards maintenance of peace and security on the African continent, including in Cote d’Ivoire.
Both sides expressed their resolve to explore further avenues for forging stronger ties in all areas of mutual interest.
