EAM takes on Pakistan for 'breeding terrorism', calls for UNSC reforms

The minister reaffirmed Pakistan's desire to engage India into meaningful dialogue

India's foreign minister accused neighboring Pakistan of harboring terrorists in an angry speech Saturday before the U.N. General Assembly and rejected the notion that India is sabotaging peace talks with Pakistan, calling it "a complete lie". "Modi government wasted the opportunity for dialogue for the third time due to their negative attitude", he said.

"Pakistan endorses the United Nations report and calls for early institution of a Commission of Inquiry under the United Nations auspices to investigate and fix responsibility", he said, adding, "We will welcome the commission to Azad Jammu and Kashmir, and hope that India too, will do the same".

On the second challenge, Swaraj said, "The demon of terrorism now stalks the world, at a faster pace somewhere, a slower pace elsewhere, but life threatening everywhere."The foreign minister noted that in India's case, "terrorism is bred not in some faraway land, but across our border to the west", pointing a finger at Pakistan".

"Postcolonialism and cold war have left its imprints in the region", he noted, adding that Pakistan would never forget the children killed in the 2014 Army Public School (APS) massacre.

Foreign Minister Sushma Swaraj's address at the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) has "disappointed" Congress leader Shashi Tharoor, who feels that all the Pakistan bashing in NY was aimed at the BJP voters.

The Jammu and Kashmir dispute was the biggest hindrance to peace in the region, Qureshi said, adding that the issue would not be resolved until the United Nations resolutions were implemented properly.

Indian media said the meeting between the foreign ministers would have been the first in almost three years.

Ford, Kavanaugh and a Senate hearing
The world is still reeling from Christine Blasey Ford's powerful testimony at Brett Kavanaugh's confirmation hearing for the U.S. Susan Collins of ME , both moderate senators who had expressed concern over the allegations against Kavanaugh.

The Minister said, last year, Pakistan's representative, using right to reply, displayed some photographs as proof of human rights violations by India. It has validated Pakistan's view.

"We call for the implementation on its recommendations. Once again, I appeal to this August body to come to an agreement soon on CCIT as one of the necessary measures in a long running war", Swaraj said. It is unfortunate that terrorism is reaching India from our neighbour.

The foreign minister called climate change "a serious issue", and said Pakistan is among those countries who are being adversely affected by the global warming. We will welcome a commission on occupied Kashmir.

Pakistan accuses India of rights violations, but terrorists are "bigger violators", the External Affairs Minister said. "We believe the resolutions in Paris conference should not be compromised for industrial interests", he said.

India also ripped through efforts of the "New Pakistan" to champion human rights.

With Qureshi again raking up the Kashmir issue, Gambhir asserted that India is making it clear to the "new government" of Pakistan that the entire state of Jammu and Kashmir is and will remain an integral part of India.

Moreover, FM Qureshi said that he will be meeting US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on October 2 to discuss bilateral matters.
