The United Nations: Until Pakistan creates a favorable atmosphere in the neighborhood, India will continue to take decisive action against cross-border terrorism emerging from the Islamic country, said the adviser of the Permanent Mission of India to the UN, Kajal Bhat, at the United Nations Security Council on Tuesday.
Taking a stand on India’s approach to a terror-free subcontinent, she said Islamabad should create a space free from terror, hostility and violence in order to have meaningful dialogue.
“India wishes normal neighborly relations with all countries, including Pakistan, and is committed to resolving outstanding issues, if any, bilaterally and peacefully, in accordance with the Simla Agreement and the Lahore Declaration. However, any meaningful dialogue can only take place in an atmosphere free from terror, hostility and violence. It is up to Pakistan to create such a favorable atmosphere. Until then, India will continue to take firm and decisive action to respond to cross-border terrorism, ”Bhat said.
India criticized Pakistan in the Security Council after Islamabad raised the Kashmir issue before the 15-member council.
“I am forced to speak again to respond to some frivolous remarks made by the representative of Pakistan earlier today. This is not the first time that the representative of Pakistan has abused the platforms provided by the UN to spread false and malicious propaganda against my country and has sought in vain to distract the world’s attention from the sad state of his country. where terrorists are given a pass while the lives of ordinary people, especially those belonging to minority communities, are turned upside down, ”she said.
The Indian representative gave her response after Pakistan’s Ambassador to the UN, Munir Akram, raised the issue of Jammu and Kashmir, an internal Indian matter, during the public debate on ” of international peace and security through preventive diplomacy ”.
Bhat, who incidentally belongs to Jammu and Kashmir, said UN member states are aware that Pakistan has “an established history and policy” of hosting, assisting and actively supporting terrorists. .
“It is a country that has been recognized worldwide as openly supporting, training, financing and arming terrorists as part of state policy. It holds the despicable record of hosting the largest number of terrorists proscribed by the UN Security Council, ”she declared.
