President Zardari, who will stay for couple of days in the New York, will give a comprehensive speech during the general debate of the 67th General Assembly session.
The theme of the debate this year is “Adjustment or settlement of international disputes or situations by special means” and Pakistan’s role is very important in this scenario due to a front line state in war against terror.
President Zardari in his important address to the General Assembly which will be on the first day of the start of the general debate will highlight the crucial role the people and the people of Pakistan have been playing the war against militants and the huge sacrifices made by the people in making the region a safe and peaceful place to live.
He will also highlight the need for the international community to undertake concerted efforts on the issues which are critical for success in the war against terror.
The President will especially mention the reaction of the Muslims, especially the people of Pakistan, on the sacrilegious film that has created unrest among the Muslims of the world, calling for the need for taking effective measures, by the member states, to stop such attempts of playing with the religious sentiments of any community.
During his stay, here in the New York, the President will also interact with the world leaders on the sidelines of UN General Assembly session.
The President will also meet head of Microsoft Bill Gates who has been helping Pakistan in eradication of polio.
