United Nations: The UN’s unfinished agenda merchandise is tackling terrorism emanating from its epicentre in Pakistan, India has stated right here replying to Pakistan mentioning the Kashmir situation on the worldwide organisation’s 75th Anniversary Commemoration session.
Vidisha Maitra, a First Secretary at India’s UN mission, stated on Monday: “If there is an item that is unfinished on the agenda of the UN, it is that of tackling the scourge of terrorism.”
“Pakistan is a country which is globally recognised epicentre of terrorism, which by its own admission harbours and trains terrorists and hails them as martyrs, and consistently persecutes its ethnic and religious minorities,” she stated.
Pakistan Overseas Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi had criticised the UN asserting that the Kashmir situation was amongst its “most glaring and long-standing failures” and that the organisation was being “derided as a ‘talk shop’.”
“The people of occupied Jammu and Kashmir still await fulfillment of the commitment made to them by the United Nations to grant them their right to self-determination,” he added.
In contrast to Qureshi whose speech was pre-recorded, Maitra spoke on the ground of the Normal Meeting chamber.
Maitra stated, “What we heard today is the never-ending fabricated narrative presented by the Pakistani representative about the internal affairs of India. We reject the malicious reference made to the Union Territory of Jammu and Kashmir, which is an integral part of India.”
She stated that from “a nation that is bereft of milestones, one can only expect a stonewalled and stymied approach to reason, diplomacy and dialogue.”
