Modi Ignored Key Issues in UN Speech: Pakistan

UNITED NATIONS – Pakistan reminded the international community that Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi ignored Kashmir and other major global issues in his address to the United Nations General Assembly.
The Indian leader addressed the 75th United Nations General Assembly on Saturday and asked for a permanent seat on the UN Security Council, but deliberately ignored major global issues. Pakistan opposed the Indian request, saying there was no room for a “fascist state” in a decision-making body like the UNSC.
Pakistan’s Ambassador to the United Nations Munir Akram said in a statement that Modi raised trivial questions in his speech while ignoring those of concern to the world.
“Modi’s speech was silent on international issues and divorced from the reality of an intolerant, divided, brutal and economically bankrupt India, locked in strife with all of its neighbors,” he said.
Speaking via video link, Modi also ignored the question of Palestine and climate change, issues that could reveal India’s two-sided approach.
On August 5, 2019, India illegally merged the occupied valleys of Jammu and Kashmir with the union, and since then millions of Kashmiris have lived under siege. The gross human rights violations in Kashmir have come under heavy criticism from the UN, international human rights organizations and the media. Still, Modi has even not mentioned their concerns in his speech.
The Modi government’s policy of marginalizing minorities, especially Muslims, has also come under harsh criticism around the world, but the Indian prime minister has also ignored this issue.
