#UN reacts to remove #PriyankaChopra as ambassador for peace

NEW YORK: The UN replied to requests that the Indian actor Priyanka Chopra be removed as UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador for Peace.

When UNICEF Goodwill Ambassadors “talk in their private ability, they maintain the privilege to talk on problems that interest or affect them,” Stephane Dujarric, Secretary-General Antonio Guterres ‘ spokesman, said in response to a query about the actor at his weekly meeting on Thursday.

“When they talk on behalf of UNICEF, we expect them to adhere to the impartial position of UNICEF based on evidence,” he added. “On their part, it is the UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador who is prominent people who agreed to give their generous volunteer time and government status to support the right of children.

Priyanka came under  criticism from Pakistan and globally for supporting war between India and Pakistan earlier this year when the nuclear rivals came close to a full scale war.

Chopra was asked to comment on her tweet at a conference in the Los Angeles by a Pakistani girl to which she responded harshly inviting criticism from all-around.

Human Rights Minister Dr Shireen M Mazari submitted a letter on Wednesday to UNICEF Executive Director Henrietta Fore requesting the instant abolition of the Indian actress as UN Goodwill Ambassador for Peace.

She penned a paper about Priyanka Chopra’s pro-war remarks and supported the BJP government’s strategy of ethnic cleansing, racism, nationalism, murder and the Indian government’s infringement of global agreements and UN resolutions on Kashmir and nuclear danger given to Pakistan by the Indian Minister of Defense.

In the letter, Dr Mazari said the support of the UN Goodwill Ambassador Priyanka Chopra for nuclear war undermines the credibility of the UN position to which she has been elevated.
