Rajnath hails Sushma's United Nations speech, says she 'exposed' Pak duplicity

Pakistan       by Sarfraz Ali | Published

India, eastern neighbour of Pakistan, is on fire as it is reflected from its reaction at the annual session of United Nations General Assembly in which it adopted childish name-calling tactic to counter forceful speech of Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi.

India Tuesday sought a probe into North Korea's nuclear proliferation linkages and demanded that those responsible for it should be held accountable, in a veiled reference to Pakistan.

"Her (Swaraj's) measured responses in spite of provocations speak volumes of her maturity and tenacity".

While India was engaged exclusively in efforts to develop itself, "Pakistan is only engaged in fighting us", she added.

EAM Sushma Swaraj was on her oratory best on Saturday as she lambasted Pakistan for nurturing terrorism with her one-liners.

She had also made a slamming response to the former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif a year ago when the Pakistani leader had raised concerns over the situation in Kashmir valley. "While a doctor saves lives, jihadis kill", she said.

On Thursday, Pakistan's prime minister accused India of war crimes in the disputed Kashmir region, calling for an United Nations investigation. "We created IITs, IIMs, AIIMS while Pakistan created LeT, Haqqanis, JeM, Hizbul Mujahideen", she said, referring to Pakistan-based terror groups.

India on Thursday urged the global community to work for complete elimination of poverty as part of the UN's 2030-deadlined Sustained Developments Goals.

India on Thursday once again urged the world to act against countries sponsoring terrorism and said "the horror of terrorism continues to haunt global peace and security". "Pakistan is responsible for aborting that peace process", she alleged.

The leaders also expressed concerns over continued conflicts and situations in several regions across the world which undermine stability and security and provide fertile grounds for terrorist activities and cause refugee and migration waves. We all in bilateral and multilateral discussions condemn this evil, and piously resolve to fight it in all our declaratory statements. The traditional method is through incremental levels of aid and hand-holding. All our economic programmes have a principal objective, the empowerment of the poor...

Ms Swaraj, who also spoke about the environmental crisis the world faces, concluded her address by reciting a Sanskrit verse that she also translated: "May all be happy; May all be healthy; May all see what is good; May all be free from suffering".
