Pakistan, The Defender Against Space War?

This is an odd headline, but Pakistan is standing in as the world's voice of reason, worried about the weaponization of outer-space. It certainly does sound like a concern the world should be talking about, but hearing a violent country bring up concerns about international disarmament is a head scratcher…
Pakistan’s permanent representative to the United Nations (UN) in Geneva Ambassador Tehmina Janjua has called for steps to prevent the weaponisation of outer-space, saying it would adversely affect regional and international peace and security.
‘Weaponisation of outer space is not science fiction anymore,’ Janjua told the UN General Assembly’s Disarmament and International Security Committee on Wednesday.
‘With the ever-growing use of outer space by an increasing number of states, both for civilian and military purposes, the potential and the risk of its weaponisation cannot be ruled out,’ she said during a debate on Outer Space matters.
