PESHAWAR (Pajhwok): Pakistan has again been denied the opportunity to address a United Nations Security Council (UNSC) meeting on Afghanistan.

India, the UNSC president for the current month, had earlier barred Pakistan from speak during the council’s meeting on August 6.

In a series of tweets on Tuesday, Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi regretted the development as “unfortunate”,

After Afghanistan, it was Pakistan that had “undeniably” been a victim of the decades-long conflict in the neighbouring country.

Qureshi wrote: “At this critical juncture in the destiny of Afghanistan, India’s partisan & obstructionist actions … speak volumes for their intention for [Afghanistan] & the region.”

He said the Pakistani embassy in Kabul was working to issue visas and evacuate diplomats, NGO staff operating in Afghanistan and media personnel.
