India, Pakistan Trade Angry Accusations At UN General Assembly

Howard TerryOct 01, 2018

"Pakistan wants better relations with other countries, but will certainly not compromise upon nation sovereignty", Qureshi said, adding that even with India, Pakistan wants respectable and equal relations. "Schools all over India had observed two minutes silence in their memory".

"India and Pakistan were supposed to meet on the sidelines of the UNGA, but its Narendra Modi government called off dialogue for the third time on flimsy grounds", said Pakistan Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi at the United Nations General Assembly in NY, adding that its neighbour prefers "politics over peace".

Swaraj also rejected the notion that India is sabotaging peace talks with Pakistan, terming it "a complete lie". We began talks with them because we believed it necessary. If they stopped, it was only due to their behavior.

"We get the sense that everything is about the political environment in India and this was a speech aimed at BJP voters and sending a message to them particularly on the subject of Pakistan rather than constructing a positive image of India in the world", Tharoor said. India accepted the proposal but, within hours of its acceptance, news came that terrorists had killed three Indian jawans, she said.

Meanwhile, UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres welcomed India's role in addressing peace and security challenges.

He said that dialogue is the only way to address longstanding issues that have affected South Asia. But soon after, Pakistan sponsored terrorists attacked our Air Force base in Pathankot on 2nd January (2016).

The demon of terrorism now stalks the world, at a faster pace somewhere, a slower pace elsewhere, but life-threatening everywhere, Swaraj said.

"In our case, terrorism is bred not in some faraway land but across our border to the west", Swaraj told the UN.

The report further said that entire South Asian Association for Regional Cooperation (SAARC) had become dysfunctional due to the attitude of India, Qureshi lamented, adding that New Delhi promoted "state-sponsored terrorism" in the Jammu and Kashmir in front of the worldwide community. "Will Pakistan deny that the UN-designated terrorist Hafiz Saeed enjoys a free run inside Pakistan and spews venom and sets up candidates for electoral offices", she said.

Swaraj pointed to the fact that Osama bin Laden lived quietly in Pakistan before he was found and killed by a U.S. Navy SEAL team. America had declared Osama bin Laden it's most unsafe enemy, and launched an exhaustive, worldwide search to bring him to justice.

She reminded the new Pakistan government under the leadership of Prime Minister Imran Khan, that there was an outpouring of sorrow and pain in India following the massacre of children in 2014. Neither has its belief in hypocrisy.

According to Swaraj, it was "heartening" to note that the "world is no longer ready to believe Islamabad".

Swaraj also slammed Pakistan for time and again accusing India of human rights violations, saying "who can be a greater transgressor of human rights than a terrorist?" Those who take innocent human lives in pursuit of war by other means are defenders of inhuman behavior, not of human rights. "They were stalled only because of Pakistan's own behaviour", she said.
