India, Pakistan at United Nations trade blame over failed bid for talks

She referred to the manner in which al-Qaeda leader Osama Bin Laden was provided "safe haven" in Pakistan to allege its duplicity in fighting terror. Neither has its belief in hypocrisy.

"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.

She advised that the United Nations must try and emulate the format of a family the nations must work together and keep every country's goals in perspective for the welfare of the world.

"Pakistan glorifies killers, refuses to see the blood of innocents, and then throws the dust of deceit on India to cover its own guilt", she said. We began talks with them because we believed it necessary. "If they stopped, it was only due to their behavior". There have been many governments in India, by many different parties.

"They preferred politics over peace", said Qureshi. "But soon after, Pak-sponsored terrorists attacked our air force base in Pathankot on 2nd January". Please explain to me how we could pursue talks in the midst of terrorist bloodshed?


Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi on Sunday will reach Washington from NY where he is scheduled to meet US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo for bilateral talks. We accepted the proposal. "But within hours of our acceptance, news came that terrorists had killed one of our jawans".

It would have been the first meeting in almost three years. Wani was killed by Indian troops in July 2016.

"The Kashmir issue should be resolved according to United Nations resolutions, which should be enforced on all parties", Qureshi said.


The Pakistani foreign minister shot back that India had called off talks three times - "each time on flimsy grounds".

Exercising a Right of Reply, Gambhir, in the UNGA general debate, called out Pakistan's baseless allegations levelled against India while saying that New Delhi orchestrated terror activities in Islamabad.

"Till today, that draft (CCIT) has remained a draft, because we can not agree on a common language".

"Pakistan has been fighting terrorism for the past 17 years and we have sacrificed thousands of lives", he added.

Swaraj further pointed out that in the absence of an global law on counter-terrorism, "cruelty and barbarism are advertised as heroism". If we do not act now, we will have to deal with conflagration later.
