COAS called on Mr Antonio Guterres, UN Secretary General at UN Headquarters, New York, according to ISPR.
UNSG warmly welcomed the visit by the COAS and appreciated the contributions made by Pakistan Army and contingents of the Law Enforcement Agencies who have remained committed to the peace and stability of the world.
COAS reaffirmed Pakistan’s continuous support to the United Nations in all its earnest efforts, said the ISPR release.

Gen Asim Munir also condemned unilateral and illegal Indian efforts to change the status of Jammu & Kashmir as it is in violation of UN Security Council Resolutions.
COAS reiterated Pakistan’s stance on the Palestine issue and urged the UNSG to mobilize the international community for immediate cessation of hostilities in Gaza to prevent the unfolding human tragedy and highlighted that enduring solution to the issue lies in Two State Solution.
He particularly shared deep concerns over the plight of the innocent civilians who are being brutally targeted and are not being provided with sufficient humanitarian relief.
The UNSG acknowledged the concerns and thanked General Syed Asim Munir, NI (M) for the visit to the UN Headquarters.
