NEW YORK: Pakistan’s permanent representative to the United Nation (UN) Maleeha Lodhi has said the UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon was ‘visibly shocked and shaken’ to witness the pictures of Kashmiri women and children who suffered pellet wound in Indian-occupied Kashmir (IoK).
In a TV interview Maleeha Lodhi said she was present at the meeting between Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and the UN secretary general on the sidelines of the 71st UN General Assembly session.
“The prime minister had turned only two pages and the secretary general was visibly shocked and shaken to see pictures of the Kashmiri women and children with pellet wounds,” she said.
The Pakistan envoy said OIC’s human rights commission would soon send a fact-finding mission to the occupied Kashmir, as was discussed in PM-Erdogan meeting in New York.
Lodhi was confident that the efforts by the PM coupled with Pakistan powerful diplomatic campaign and the ground situation in IoK will help bring the facts before the world.
