Modi and Sharif-wefornews

New Delhi, Sep 22, 2016: Reacting to Pakistan at United Nations General Assembly (UNGA), India on Thursday lashed out at its rival country by saying the “glorification” of Hizbul Mujahideen terrorist Burhan Wani showed Islamabad’s “attachment to terrorism”.

Pakistan is in complete denial of its complicity in Sunday’s cross-border terror attack on an army base at Jammu and Kashmir’s Uri that resulted in the death of 18 soldiers, India said after Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif did not mention a word of the incident in his address at the 71st Session of the UN General Assembly in New York.

Soon after Sharif’s address, External Affairs Ministry spokesperson Vikas Swarup tweeted:

Sharif cited Hizbul commander Burhan Wani, whose killing on July 8 flared off unrest in the Kashmir Valley leading to the dead of nearly 90 people, dubbing him a “young leader” and the emblem of the Kashmiri unrest.

Rejoindering to Sharif’s claim that India has been putting unacceptable conditions to Pakistan offer for bilateral dialogue, Swarup said:

On Tuesday, In the wake to fight against terrorism, Two American Congressmen have introduced legislation in the US House of Representatives to designate ‘Pakistan a state sponsor of terrorism.’

An obviously troubled Sharif did not make any mention of Balochistan in which the issue of human rights abuses has been raised by India.
