MPs ask Ghani to ‘expose’ Pakistan at UN

MPs ask Ghani to ‘expose’ Pakistan at UN

Sep 17, 2017 - 17:38

KABUL (Pajhwok): Some Meshrano Jirga or Senate members on Sunday demanded President Ashraf Ghani effectively highlight Pakistan’s support to terrorism in the upcoming United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) meeting.

President Ghani is expected to travel to New York to attend the 70th UNGA meeting and to meet his US counterpart Donald Trump on the sidelines of the multinational gathering.

The president on Sunday left Kabul for Ashgabat, the capital of Turkmenistan, to attend the inaugural ceremony of the Asian Games and from there he would travel to New York.

Senator Mohammad Rahim Hussainyar told today’s session: “The president in the upcoming UNGA meeting and his separate meeting with US president Donald Trump should talk about realities in Afghanistan and the region.”

He hoped Ghani’s trip would have positive outcomes and said the president was expected to adopt a clear position regarding Pakistan’s alleged support to terrorist organizations.

Lailuma Ahmadi, another lawmaker, said: “We hope the president may earn more pledges from the international community regarding support to Afghanistan and equipment for Afghan forces. The president should earn global community’s continued support for Afghanistan.”

Other lawmakers shared similar views and hoped the president would take decisive position against Pakistan.

Senate Chairman Fazal Hadi Muslimyar asked President Ghani to expose Pakistan’s real face at the global forum and at bilateral meetings with world leaders in New York
