India terms Qureshi's remarks on 2014 school attack 'despicable'

PM Abbasi addresses 72nd session of the UNGA

"We call for the implementation of its recommendations", he said.

Qureshi said Imran Khan's election two months ago had brought about "a fundamental shift" in Pakistan, which is seeking dialogue to resolve disputes between the two countries. We will welcome a commission on Kashmir; Geo TV quoted Qureshi as saying.

FM Qureshi also warned the United Nations chief to remain wary of Indian propaganda, "Pakistan is willing to hold talks with India for peace and is ready to talk with India on all matters, however, India should also play its role". "The [Narendra] Modi government wasted an opportunity for a dialogue for the third time due to their negative attitude", he underlined, Geo TV reported.

India and Pakistan exchanged barbs at the United Nations on Saturday after plans for a rare meeting between the foreign ministers in NY fell through.

"We hope India will do it as well", he added, and warned that India should not test the patience of Islamabad by continuously violating the Line of Control (LoC).

Though the global community has become increasingly aware of Pakistan's role in promoting terrorism, the absence of an worldwide agreement on the definition of terrorism allows Pakistan to characterise terrorists as "freedom fighters", Ms. Swaraj said. A statement from the Pakistan foreign office on Saturday said it had "highlighted the plight of the people of occupied Jammu and Kashmir" - as Pakistan refers to the region of Kashmir under Indian administration.

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".

He said there is no military solution to the war in Afghanistan. The two neighbouring nations "have been the target of foreign power's misunderstandings for long".

Talking to media persons in NY, he said India had frequently violated the ceasefire along the Line of Control (LoC) in Kashmir in an attempt to divert the world's attention from its endless brutalities in Kashmir, but Pakistan acted with restraint.

The Indian leader told the world leaders at the General Assembly that the most startling evidence of Pakistan's duplicity was the fact that Osama Bin Laden, the architect and ideologue of 9/11 terror attack was given safe haven in the country. India's address at the UNGA will begin at 7:15 pm.

"One country has kept the entire South Asian region".

He said Pakistan knows to defend its interests and ideology. "India believes that we must move forward together or we sink into the swamp of stagnation".

"We accepted the proposal", Swaraj said.

"The meeting between India and Pakistan could have been a good opportunity to have a dialogue on various issues".
