PM Imran congratulates FO on Pakistan’s re-election to UNHRC

Islamabad (Web Desk): Prime Minister Imran Khan on Wednesday congratulated the Foreign Office (FO) on Pakistan’s re-election to the UN Human Rights Council (HRC).


“I commend the role of the Foreign Office and Pakistan’s Missions abroad in yet another diplomatic achievement, enhancing Pakistan’s profile and recognition on the international stage,” the premier said in a tweet.

PM Khan also vowed to continue exposing human rights violations committed with impunity by the Indian occupation forces in Indian occupied Kashmir.

On Tuesday, Pakistan re-elected to the UN HRC for a period of three years with an overwhelming majority “despite Indian opposition”.

The 193-member UN General Assembly held elections for 15 new members to the 47-member Human Rights Council, which is based in Geneva.
