Earlier, it was also proposed that PM Nawaz would raise the issue of Indian involvement in the terrorist activities in Pakistan in the UNGA.

PM Nawaz will also attend receptions to be hosted separately by the UN secretary general and the US president to regard the heads of states.

Prior to premier’s visit to New York, the government was in a fix over Washington’s appeal to join its military alliance against Islamic State, which has set up a self-proclaimed Caliphate over large land in Iraq and Syria.
