Pakistan rejects UN report terming security operation in Khyber Agency 'armed conflict'

Washington, Wed, 27 Jun 2012 ANI

Washington, June 27 (ANI): Pakistan took exception to a United Nations report that termed its law enforcement operation against terrorists in the Khyber Agency 'armed conflict', while pointing out that it fails to take due notice of the situations of foreign occupation.

Ambassador Raza Bashir Tarar, Pakistan's Deputy Permanent Representative to the UN, said by no stretch of imagination could Pakistan's law enforcement operation against terrorists be termed armed conflict, reports The Nation.

"We are disappointed that the authors of this report have clearly violated the mandate by mentioning Pakistan in the report. This anomaly must be resolved," Tarar was quoted, as saying.

The report, which was issued in the name of UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, referred to the displacement of civilians from armed conflicts in Africa, the Middle East and Central Asia. In this context, the report also said some 200,000 people have been displaced in Pakistan since January by security operations in the Khyber Agency.

It also made references to denial of access in conflict areas to humanitarian workers in different parts of the world, including Pakistan.

"The Secretary General's report has unwarranted references to Pakistan, which we plainly reject," Tarar said.

"Pakistan has suffered immensely from the menace of terrorism, with thousands of lives lost among the security and law enforcement bodies and civilians. Pakistan's law enforcement operation against terrorists cannot be termed 'armed conflict'," he said.(ANI)
