PM Kakar Advocates Peace and Cooperation at UNGA

In his first speech to the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA), Pakistan's Caretaker Prime Minister, Anwaar-ul-Haq Kakar, highlighted the importance of peace for growth and progress. He urged the global powers to help persuade India to agree to Pakistan's idea of not increasing their weapons.

PM Kakar said that for countries to grow together, they need peace. He mentioned that Pakistan is in a region where countries don't do much trade or business together. Yet, Pakistan hopes to have friendly ties with all its neighbours, especially India.

He also discussed the ongoing issue of Kashmir. The Prime Minister reminded everyone of the decisions made by the UN about Kashmir. According to him, these decisions can bring peace between India and Pakistan. He said that the people of Kashmir should be allowed to decide their future.

PM Kakar also talked about the large number of Indian soldiers in Kashmir since 2019 and the problems the people face. He said that the international community, especially the UN, should ensure that the decisions about Kashmir are followed.

Speaking about extreme beliefs, Kakar mentioned the rise of strong Hindu nationalist views in India. He said these views are dangerous, especially for Muslims and Christians in India. He stressed that there's a difference between people fighting for their freedom and terrorism.

Talking about Afghanistan, he said peace there is very important for Pakistan. He spoke about the need to help the people of Afghanistan, especially women and girls. Kakar also said that Pakistan is trying to stop terrorist attacks from Afghanistan.

Regarding the structure of the UN, Kakar expressed concerns. Adding more permanent members to the main group might make it less effective. He believes in equal rights for all countries in the UN.

PM Kakar also touched upon the topic of Islamophobia. He said that after the 9/11 attacks, the world started seeing Muslims differently. He praised the steps taken by the UN to address this issue.

Regarding the situation between Israel and Palestine, Kakar said that the only way forward is if both countries exist in peace.

Lastly, he praised the role of the UN's peacekeeping forces and talked about global challenges like the Russia-Ukraine issue. He highlighted the need for countries to work together for a better future.

In his speech, PM Kakar's message was clear: peace and cooperation are crucial for a better world.
