After UNGA setback, Khan removes UN official Maleeha Lodhi

Updated 01 Oct 2019 10:12 PM

Pakistan's Prime Minister Imran Khan has abruptly removed his country's Permanent Representative Maleeha Lodhi after failing to make headway in his Kashmir campaign at the General Assembly's high-level meeting.

Pakistani media reported on Monday that she will be replaced by Munir Akram, who had done a stint as the permanent representative.

Akram was involved in an alleged domestic violence incident in 2002 just as Pakistan was taking its place on Security Council as an elected member and the US asked his country to lift his diplomatic immunity so he could be prosecuted.
