Pakistan’s former top UN envoy predict World War III


ISLAMABAD, APR 14 (DNA) – Pakistan’s former ambassador to the United Nations Abdullah Hussain Haroon has warned world powers against fuelling the war in Syria , saying it may lead to the third world war.

“Unfortunately, a lot of leadership in the world is playing all sorts of games and the wider vision is being ignored,” Haroon said in a statement posted on his Facebook account.

“All the ingredients that can lead to an international war exist in Syria , which would not just last there,” the former envoy said.

Addressing the US administration specifically, Haroon said, “don’t take another few million people to embroil them in a world war because you already have seen the result of the refugee crisis in Europe.”

No matter what [US President Donald] Trump says, he is not going to leave Syria alone, for a very simple reason that the country has to be divided into several different factions.

Haroon, who represented Pakistan at the UN from September 2008 to December 2012, pointed to the circumstances of war in Iraq, Libya, Yemen, and said, “now Syria is going the same path, this is not manageable.”
