Pakistan can’t be forced like Arab nations to recognize Israel: Munir Akram

Permanent Representative of Pakistan to the United Nations, Munir Akram, has said that Pakistan could not back off its principal stance regarding self-determination and Palestinians’ struggle.

Mr. Akram made these remarks during an interview with Voice of America’s Ali Furqan.

Munir clarified that recognizing Israel would be against Pakistan’s basic principle, and no power in the world can force Pakistan to back down from its principled position. We will not cheat and stab behind the back of Palestinian brothers.

“Since Pakistan’s foundation, the basic principle has been remained to support the self-determination of public movements in the world.”

He emphasized that Pakistan is not a weak state, which could be pressured to recognize Israel as other Arab countries.

“Arab countries that recognize Israel as a state have their own external and internal constraints, but Pakistan has to look at its own policies and interests,” said Munir.

“Pakistan is the world’s fifth-largest nuclear and military power with a population of 220 million. It cannot be forced to change its policies and interests under pressure,” he added.

Munir Akram also termed his election as a member of the UN Human Rights Council as a ‘great success’ and said that this proves that Pakistan is still respected in the world.

He said that the Human Rights Council is the UN’s key body that deals with fundamental human rights violations and problems worldwide. Council’s responsibility is to find solutions and bring peace to the world.

While talking about India’s aggressive occupation of Jammu and Kashmir, Munir Akram said Pakistan raised Kashmiris’ right of self-determination last year after India tried to change the special status of occupied Jammu and Kashmir.

He claimed that India had been barred from being a permanent member of the Security Council for 20 years. For this, Pakistan would continue to use its growing influence in the United Nations.
