KARACHI: Pakistan enjoys enormous respect at the United Nations (UN), the country’s former ambassador and permanent representative to the UN Maleeha Lodhi told the audience, saying the country should be proud of this fact. Lodhi, who is the first woman diplomat to represent Pakistan at the UN, was speaking to the Roundtable on ‘Pakistan and the UN: Challenges to Multilateralism and Opportunities’ on Sunday in DHA.

Pakistan's engagement at the UN started very early, “within months of our independence.” That was a very smart move at that time because we got independence earlier than many countries in Africa and even in Asia making us the leaders of the decolonization process – helping many of these countries, and were able to enjoy strong voice,” she explained, “When these countries became members, they thanked us, looked up to Pakistan and they were obviously grateful to Pakistan for the role it had played.”
