India doesn’t qualify for UNSC membership, Pakistan says in UNGA debate

New York (Web Desk): Pakistan has told the UN General Assembly again that India does not even qualify for a seat on the 15-member United Nations Security Council (UNSC), citing New Delhi’s violations of its resolutions on Indian Illegally Occupied Jammu and Kashmir (IIOJK).


India — along with Brazil, Germany and Japan — has been campaigning for a permeant UNSC membership.

Speaking to the UN General Assembly (GA) on Monday, Pakistan's Permanent Representative Ambassador Munir Akram, reaffirmed Islamabad’s opposition to adding new permanent members in UNSC and reminded the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) that the South Asian country [India] had waged 20 wars since independence and fomented terrorism and instability across the region, especially against Pakistan.

“We have clear and ample evidence of this state-sponsored terrorism,” the Pakistani envoy told the 193-member GA.
