Islamabad: The chairman of Senate Standing Committee on Interior, Rehman Malik, has asked UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon to convene a special session of the world body for a discussion on the threat posed by Daesh to the world peace.
In a letter addressed to the UN chief, Mr Malik said that the special session should set up a body to investigate reasons behind the rise of Daesh, besides identifying their support and funding sources.
The former minister wrote the letter to the UN secretary general in the context of Daesh’s last week attacks in Paris.
He suggested that the UN should separately set up a commission of eminent personalities to suggest a strategy to defeat the menace. He emphasised that the strategy should be formed through consensus.
Mr Malik cautioned that there was a possibility of the Third World War due to rising tensions between countries because of Daesh’s actions.
