ISLAMABAD, APR 24 – On the occasion of International Day for Multilateralism and Diplomacy for Peace, being observed across the globe today, Pakistan reaffirms its abiding commitment to multilateralism and the central role of the United Nations in promoting a peaceful and prosperous world order.
The United Nations, as the most representative international organization and the quintessential expression of multilateralism, is the main platform to address multifaceted global issues. This International Day should serve to renew our collective resolve to uphold the UN Charter and its purposes and principles.
Nations all over the world look up to the UN to achieve peaceful and just resolution of disputes, and for the maintenance of international peace and security. The people living under foreign occupation, in particular, hold great expectations from the Organisation to enable them to exercise their inalienable right to self determination.
Preserving the values of multilateralism and international cooperation, which underpin the UN Charter and the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, is fundamental to promote a rules-based system. The complex challenges faced by the international community today are a stark reminder of the need for enhancing cooperative multilateralism.
In line with its ardent support for multilateralism, Pakistan participates actively in the work of the United Nations and all its affiliated institutions. We always strives to contribute constructively to the agenda setting, policy formulation and normative development undertaken through multilateral fora. Pakistan will continue to play its part in promoting international and regional peace and security, sustainable development and climate action, and the protection of human rights and fundamental freedoms for all.
