872 ংলাদেশের স্বাধীনতা যুদ্ধ দলিলপত্রঃ ত্রয়োদশ খন্ড শিরোনাম সূত্র তারিখ জাতিসংঘ সাধারণ পরিষদে মিঃ মাহমুদ আলীর | জাতিসংঘ ডকুমেন্টস ২৭ সেপ্টেম্বর, ১৯৭১ (পাকিস্তান) ববৃ زيا STATEMENT BY MR. MAHMUD ALI (PAKISTAN) IN THE U. N. GENERAL ASSEMBLY September 27, 1971 My Delegation was compelled this morning to raise a point of order in the course of the statement made by the honorable Foreign Minister of India. The greater portion of his speech was concerned with matters which lie entirely within the domestic jurisdiction of my country. In raising objection to this open intervention in Pakistan's affairs, my Delegation was guided by the principle which is stated in categorical terms in Article 2, operative paragraph 7, of the United Nations Charter, namely that the international Organization will not intervene in the internal affairs of Member States. This is a principle which is unanimously accepted, and is to be found also in the Charter of the Organization of African Unity and of the Organization of American States, as well as other international forums, such as the Non-Aligned Conference and the Afro-Asian Conference. We ask that this principle be upheld-not, as was insinuated, because Pakistan has something to conceal-but because the precedent set this morning by the Representative of India will make it difficult, if not impossible, to conduct international relations in an orderly and effective manner. India has intervened in the internal affairs of Pakistan, in violation of all norms of international behavior, international law and the Charter of the United Nations. International law places a clear obligation on all States to respect the territorial jurisdiction of other States. In December, 1965, the United Nations General Assembly adopted a resolution, with only one vote against, entitled "Declaration on the Inadmissibility of Intervention in the Domestic Affairs of State and the Protection of their Independence and.............. Sovereignty". Operative paragraph 1 states: "No State has the right to intervene, directly or indirectly, for any reasons whatever, in the internal or external affairs of any other State. Consequently, armed intervention and all other forms of interference or attempted threats against the personality of the State or against its political, economic or cultural element are condemned". Operative paragraph 2 reads: 13 - - - - - - no State shall organize, assist, foment, finance, incite or tolerate subversive, terrorist or armed activities directed towards the violent overthrow of the regime of another State, or interfere in civil Strife in another State".
