Lodhi was replaced by Munir Akram who had previously served the same position from 2002-2008.

He specialises in multilateral diplomacy with considerable experience over the years at the UN’s New York and Geneva chapters.

The Foreign Office gave no reason for Lodhi’s removal. However, in an interview, she herself has said;

It has been an honour to serve the country and I am grateful for being given this opportunity to do so for over four years.

Representing Pakistan at the world’s most important multilateral forum was both a privilege and an enormous responsibility.

I had planned to move on following the United nations General Assembly and am fortunate to leave on a high note after a successful visit by Prime Minister Imran Khan and am humbled by the appreciation I have received and the support I have also received over the years.

She thanked everyone for the support she has received over the years and wished her successor the best of luck.

“The support I have also received over the years. I wish my successor Munir Akram the best of luck,” she tweeted.
