New Delhi, Oct 12, 2016: Amid the escalating tension between India and Pakistan following cross-border firing, Indian envoy Venkatesh Verma tells United Nation (UN) to put some strong points forward on the nuclear agendas of Pakistan in response.
Verma who retaliated to Pakistan envoy Tehmina Janjua’s Kashmir call by saying that active promotion of terrorism and expansion of nuclear weapons carries a threat to ‘peace and stability’.
The Indian response came after Janjua orally added a reference to the “Kashmir issue” to Pakistan’s statement in the ‘first committee’ which concerns itself with disarmament and non-proliferation issues. The remark was not there in her written statement. Verma responded by reminding the UN that “nuclear proliferation linkages which are active today have clear Pakistan fingerprints”.
However, he also asserted that Pakistan is responsible for blocking international disarmament agenda. ‘Nuclear programme is under a shadow of a nexus between states and terrorists,’ Verma added.
With the suffering loss of Army soldiers due to the consistent ceasefire violations and attacks by terrorists, the Indian government is now not leaving any stone unturned to hit back Pakistan.
