Pakistan calls for self-determination in IIOJK and occupied Palestinian territories

ISLAMABAD, APR 24 /DNA/ – On the occasion of the International Day for Multilateralism and Diplomacy for Peace today, Pakistan reaffirms its abiding commitment to promoting multilateralism and diplomacy, which are important pillars of Pakistan’s foreign policy.

Multilateralism, diplomacy, dialogue, and international cooperation constitute important cornerstones of the comprehensive approach required to address existing and emerging international challenges, in an effective and credible manner.

Pakistan has always upheld the central role of the United Nations, as the most representative expression of multilateralism, in the arena of international relations, and has been constructively participating in all aspects of its work.

International peace and security, as well as global prosperity and universal enjoyment of human rights, can be preserved and promoted through strict adherence to the principles of the UN Charter; faithful implementation of UN Security Council resolutions and international law; and cooperation among Member States within the framework of the UN Charter.

International Day for Multilateralism and Diplomacy for Peace also reminds us of the need for redoubling multilateral efforts to resolve long-outstanding disputes and conflicts, and to allow peoples living in internationally recognized situations of foreign occupation, including Indian Illegally Occupied Jammu and Kashmir (IIOJK) and the Occupied Palestinian Territories, their inalienable right to self-determination through the implementation of relevant UN resolutions.

Pakistan remains committed to multilateral cooperation and diplomacy for peace at the regional and international levels to address all challenges.
