Pakistan will continue to play its role in maintaining peace in region: Maleeha

New York (Agencies): Pakistan has warned that arbitrary cuts in peacekeeping funding risk diminishing effectiveness of UN’s flagship operations and jeopardizing the safety of peacekeepers.


Addressing the fourth committee meeting of United Nations’ General Assembly, Pakistan's permanent representative to the UN, Maleeha Lodhi said Pakistan supports Secretary-General Antonio Guterres’ campaign to eliminate the scourge of sexual exploitation and abuse from the UN System, Radio Pakistan reported.

Lodhi further said Pakistan was among the first to sign the Secretary-General’s Compact for Elimination of SEA, and Prime Minister Imran Khan joined UN chief’s Circle of Leadership on it.

She said Pakistan co-hosts one of the UN’s earliest missions, the United Nations Military Observer Group in India, and continues to play vital role in maintaining peace and security in our region.
