"Multilateralism is a key part of our foreign policy," said Qureshi, highlighting Pakistan's role in peacekeeping efforts around the world on UN Day.
He chose the opportunity to call on the UN to probe human rights abuses in Indian-occupied Kashmir (IoK) as documented in the recent UNHRC report and urged the world body to open an inquiry into the matter.
"The council owes it to the Kashmiri people and the world at large to play its mandated role."
