Pakistan Will Keep an Eye on India in the UNSC: Munir Akram

Munir Akram, Pakistan’s ambassador to the United Nations (UN), said Pakistan would keep a close eye on India to ensure that New Delhi did not harm the country’s core interests during its presidency of the United Nations Security Council (UNSC).

Reports state that India has the acquired the presidency of the UN Security Council (UNSC) by France for August. This is India’s first term as a non-permanent member of the Security Council for 22-2021.

“Certainly India will use the presidency of the Council to promote its own rhetoric on various issues, including terrorism,” Akram told Dawn.

“We will closely monitor its conduct and ensure that no move that goes against Pakistan’s core interests succeeds,” he said.

Trimurti, India’s Permanent Representative, tweeted that during the presidency, India would host three high-level meetings on maritime security, peacekeeping, and counter-terrorism.

Monday will be the first day of India’s presidency when the Trimurti will give a month-long hybrid press briefing on the council’s program at the UN headquarters.

Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi is expected to address the Security Council on August 9, becoming the first Indian Prime Minister to chair a UNSC meeting.
