From The Editor’s Desk
I feel delighted to present the June Edition of Global Affairs for our esteemed readers around the globe.
The past month has been full of significant developments taking place across the globe. The continuation of Israeli vicious cycle of violence against innocent Palestinians is an issue of particular concern. In the past month, the world witnessed how war crimes were committed against civilians by a modern apartheid state. UN has denounced the violence while saying that Gaza attacks may constitute as war crimes while the UNHRC has ordered an open-ended probe into Israeli actions. The world must condemn Israeli acts of ethnic cleansing, apartheid, and war crimes while remaining mindful of their efforts to disguise any criticism of their policies as Anti-Semitism.
Pakistan and China are celebrating 70 Years of diplomatic relations this year on which I would like to congratulate both countries. Pakistan and China are fostering an all-weather strategic cooperative partnership based on mutual trust, respect and goodwill.
Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi undertook important diplomatic engagements this month. Embarking on a diplomatic tour for the Palestine issue, FM Qureshi interacted with dignitaries from across the world and sensitized them regarding the suffering of the Palestinians. He also engaged with UN Secretary General and addressed the UNGA on the matter. His other important engagements include his interaction with US lawmakers and his discussion with US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken.
Moreover, Kashmir Premier League is all set to become an international cricket sensation. The management of KPL met with the President of Pakistan H.E Dr. Arif Alvi in this regard who appreciated the initiative and termed it as the only one-of-its-kind initiative for Kashmir in the 74 Years history of Pakistan.
Furthermore, US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken met with his Russian counterpart Sergey Lavrov in their first ever engagement, President Biden celebrated an America ‘on the move again’ and COAS Gen Bajwa visited Afghanistan to discuss Afghan Peace Process with Ashraf Ghani and Abdullah Abdullah.
Amazon has also started its operations in Pakistan, while the Chinese Zhurong Rover made a historic landing on Mars, and US Air Force’s Skyborg AI took flight for the first time. Apart from these major developments, the June Edition also showcases important developments of both national and international significance, along with opinion pieces of several esteemed experts. Thankyou for choosing Global Affairs.
