India at UN: Pakistan is Harboring Terrorists

India at UN: Pakistan is Harboring Terrorists

Earlier, EAM Sushma Swaraj held bilateral and multilateral discussions with her counterparts from other countries and also met several United Nations officials.

India cancelled the talks offered by Pakistan's new Prime Minister Imran Khan following an attack that foreign minister Sushma Swaraj said had killed three Indian soldiers.

Pakistan's duplicity is a key obstacle in the global fight against terrorism and India is an immediate and continuing target of terrorism originating from there, External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj told the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) on Saturday.

Explaining how Islamabad betrayed even Washington, Swaraj said, "Osama Bin Laden, the architect and ideologue of 9/11, was given safe haven in Pakistan, a country that claimed to be America's friend and ally".

Qureshi said the Jammu and Kashmir's dispute is the biggest hindrance to peace in the region, adding the issue will not be resolved until implementation of the United Nations resolutions.

FM Qureshi also warned the United Nations chief to remain wary of Indian propaganda, "Pakistan is willing to hold talks with India for peace and is ready to talk with India on all matters, however, India should also play its role". "If they stopped, it was only due to their behaviour". Those who take innocent human lives in pursuit of war by other means are defenders of inhuman behavior, not of human rights. "If they stopped, it was only because of Pakistan's behaviour", she said in her address to the General Debate of the 73rd session of the UN General Assembly here.

Before Solo , Lucasfilm had been planning more Star Wars Anthology films, including an Obi-Wan Kenobi movie and a Boba Fett film. The only outright flop has been Solo: A Star Wars Story , and when you're batting.750, you deserve to come back to the plate.

Sushma Swaraj said it was "heartening" that the world was no longer ready to believe Pakistan.

On cross-border terrorism, she said that in India's case, terrorism is bred not in some faraway land, but across the country's border.

External Affairs Minister Swaraj appealed at UNGA that a Comprehensive (Convention On International Terrorism) should be passed as soon as possible after a consensus is reached. "Surely there is something to learn from this coincidence?" she said. Reform can not be cosmetic.

We need to change the institution's head and heart to make both compatible to contemporary reality.

Regarding the challenge of climate change, she said, "If we have to save the world from the adverse effects of climate change, then developed nations must lift the deprived with financial and technical resources". Reform must begin today; tomorrow could be too late.
