United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) President-elect Volkan Bozkir has termed Pakistan’s strategy to contain coronavirus infection a ‘good example’ for the world to follow.

Addressing a news conference on Monday alongside Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi, Bozkir expressed condolences over the Covid deaths.

“Pakistan has been a good example for the world with its pandemic-related policies. The figures show that Pakistan has done better than other countries in the world and I am happy to observe it with my own eyes,” said the president-elect who arrived in Islamabad earlier in the day on a two-day official visit.

Bozkir also expressed his strong support for the longstanding dispute of Jammu and Kashmir, linking it with peace and stability of the South Asian region.

“The Jammu and Kashmir dispute needs to be settled through peaceful means,” he stressed.

Bozkir, the first Turkish national to hold this position for 75th UNGA session, said Turkey’s position on Jammu and Kashmir was well-known and its foreign ministry had issued a strong statement over India’s action of August 5.

FM Qureshi mentioned that during his meeting with the UNGA president-elect, he briefed him about the evolving situation of Indian Illegally Occupied Jammu and Kashmir (IIOJK) facing military siege for last one year, human rights violations, and illegal search and cordon operations.
