FM urges UNSG to persuade India to reverse its unilateral measures on Kashmir issue

Foreign Minister Bilawal Bhutto Zardari urges UN Secretary-General to persuade India to reverse its unilateral measures and agree to promote an equitable solution to the Jammu and Kashmir dispute.

He was speaking at the 12th Ministerial Meeting of the UN Group of Friends of Mediation co-chaired by Turkiye and Finland in New York on Wednesday.

Bilawal Bhutto Zardari said the UN Security Council should give full support to the Secretary- General in using his good offices to this end.

 He said the Jammu and Kashmir dispute is one of the oldest issues on the agenda of the Council. At the outset, the Security Council decided that “the final disposition of the State of Jammu and Kashmir will be made in accordance with the will of the people expressed through the democratic method of a free and impartial plebiscite conducted under the auspices of the United Nations”.

The Pakistan Foreign Minister said unfortunately, over the last seven decades, India obstructed the efforts of the UN mechanisms to implement the Security Council’s resolutions on Jammu and Kashmir. The continuation of India’s illegal actions was manifested in the unilateral measures taken on and since 5 August 2019 to annex the occupied territory of Jammu and Kashmir without even the fig leaf of legal justification or plebiscite.

Bilawal Bhutto Zardari said the Secretary General’s repeated calls for a ‘surge in diplomacy’ for peace is both urgent and important. He said such a surge of diplomacy must emanate from the United Nations.

He said Pakistan also commends the UN Secretary General and President Erdogan of Turkiye for successfully mediating the landmark Black Sea Grain Initiative.

In the end, he said that Pakistan is a proud member of the Group of Friends of Mediation and he would like to thank the Chairs and all the members of the Group for their work.

SINGAPORE, Sept. 20, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Vantage, the international multi-asset trading platform today announces its partnership with UNESCO (United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organisation), as a part of its social commitment to strengthen education opportunities to emerging markets like India.

Within this partnership, Vantage is supporting the “State of the Education Report for India, 2022 – Artificial Intelligence (AI) in Education,” which was launched today in New Delhi, India. The Report covers a number of pertinent issues at the intersection of AI and education, including the potential of artificial intelligence to empower teachers and enhance our understanding of the learning process.

Commenting on the partnership, Marc Despallieres, Chief Strategy & Trading Officer at Vantage, said, “Our global footprint and presence in emerging markets has provided us with a unique perspective into the issues faced by our communities. We aim to foster a long-term, strategic partnership with UNESCO that rests on the foundations of our shared values – inclusion and equity. As a financial services provider, lending our support towards emerging technological developments in education, such as on AI in education and on digital literacy initiatives to students and learners in India, was a natural first step to take on this education journey.”

Talking about the role of artificial intelligence in financial inclusion, Eric Falt, Director and UNESCO Representative to Bhutan, India, the Maldives and Sri Lanka, said, “While the world may be on the fence about AI, this much is certain that AI is here to stay. With the rise of ICTs and digital banking platforms, AI has made financial inclusion a reality in India. Financial education and skilling are key to improving the economic and social well-being of people, especially women. In light of the same, we are very happy to partner with Vantage who share our commitments.”

Vantage’s partnership with UNESCO New Delhi brings together two organisations with a shared aspiration to ensure that no one is left behind.
