UNITED NATIONS: Pakistan has underscored the need for stabilising the chaotic situation in West Asia and the Levant through a consistent dialogue between regional states, supported by major powers and promoted by the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC). “It (the dialogue) can help build consensus on collective counter terrorism actions, based on the principles of the UN Charter and the divinely ordained unity of the world’s Muslims -- the Ummah,” Ambassador Maleeha Lodhi, Pakistan’s permanent representative to the UN, told the Security Council. She drew attention to Pakistan’s contribution to promoting harmony in the region as illustrated by the recent mediatory mission undertaken by PM Nawaz Sharif to Riyadh and Teheran.
