Pakistan challenges India’s eligibility for UNSC’s membership


New York, Nov 26 (TNS): At the United Nations, Pakistan has challenged India’s qualifications for permanent or non-permanent membership of the UN Security Council.

Speaking at U.N. General Assembly today, Pakistan’s permanent representative to United Nations Munir Akram said New Delhi was in blatant violation of 15-member body’s resolutions aimed at settling the decades-old Kashmir dispute.

He said India had imposed a complete curfew and lockdown on 8 million people for over a 100 days and it is perpetrating massive violations of human rights against them and against its own minority communities.
