Canberra: Pakistani High Commissioner to Australia Zahid Hafeez Chaudhri this week congratulated Pakistan on re-election to the UN Committee on NGOs.
“Pakistan re-elected for seventh time to the UN Committee on NGOs – A reflection of int’l community’s confidence in Pakistan’s role and contribution to the work of the UN,” he tweeted.
Earlier, United Nations re-elected Pakistan to its Committee of Non-governmental Organizations (NGOs) following the election that took place at the Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) of the UN in New York on 13th April, 2022.
This is the country’s seventh time being elected to the committee, Pakistan’s Foreign Ministry said.
The committee is an intergovernmental body that oversees the implementation of the legal framework governing NGOs’ participation in the work of the United Nations.
“Pakistan’s election to the committee reflects the confidence of the international community in its role and contribution to the work of the United Nations. Pakistan will continue to promote cooperation between the UN and civil society organizations working alongside governments to improve the lives of people all around the world,” said the foreign ministry.
