ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif will address the annual United Nations General Assembly on September 30 and details of the visit are still being chalked out, Foreign Office spokesman Syed Qazi Khalilullah said on Thursday.
“The prime minister’s speech before UNGA is being finalised,” the spokesman said at a weekly news briefing in Islamabad.
The spokesman expressed concern over Line of Control (LoC) violations and asked India to honour ceasefire agreement between the two countries.
Qazi Khaliullah said Pakistan wanted to become member of Nuclear Suppliers Group (NSG) and efforts are underway in this regard.
The Foreign Office spokesman said that Pakistan condemns Israeli aggression against Palstinians during recent clashes in and around Jerusalem’s flashpoint Al-Aqsa mosque compound.
He also reiterated Pakistan’s stance on the issue calling upon the UN Security Council to adopt a resolution setting timelines and parameters for establishing an independent, viable and contiguous state of Palestine, based on the pre-1967 borders, with Jerusalem as its capital.
