Pakistan wins UN Human Rights Council election 

Pakistan on Tuesday was re-elected to the United Nations Human Rights Council (HRC) with an overwhelming majority securing 169 votes in the 193-member UN General Assembly.

Elections were held in New York. Among the five candidates from the Asia-Pacific region vying for four seats, Pakistan secured the highest number of votes.

Securing a good number votes show the world reposed trust in Pakistan, Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi said, adding that Islamabad has always raised voice for human rights.
