Pakistan neglected in UNGA: MEA

Published

Ministry of External Affairs spokesperson Vikas Swarup on Thursday said that no country in the world accepted the Pakistan’s way of fighting against the terrorism.

India won against Pakistan at the UN as Pak disrupted bilateral ties following the Uri incident which left 18 soldiers dead in Jammu and Kashmir.

“No one and I mean no other country at UN has spoken on the subject (Pakistan prime minister) Nawaz Sharif devoted 80 per cent of his time to during his speech at the UNGA. Four of the five members of the UNSC have spoken but even they did not support Pakistan’s stand,” Swarup said.

Swarup commented on the report or the dossier that Sharif handed over to UN secretary general Ban ki-Moon, he said, “As far as the so called dossier Nawaz Sharif spoke of in his speech, we find no mention of it in UN.” Ban Ki-Moon did not speak about the Kashmir issue in his final speech.

The MEA spokesperson said that India was successful in “sensitizing the world” about how Pakistan was sponsoring terrorism. “Our actions speak for themselves and you can see our actions are already delivering results,” Swarup said.

“You would have seen the very strong condemnation of Uri Attack by most countries including UK, France, Saudi Arabia and many others,” Swarup said, adding, “The onus is now squarely on Pakistan to act against terror groups, who find safe havens in Pakistan.”

 He added that India will talk about how Pakistan sponsors terrorism when it will engage with China at the diplomatic level.

Meanwhile, a bill was introduced by two senior legislators in the US Congress seeking to declare Pakistan as a terrorist state.

Earlier, a bill was introduced in US Congress which focused on declaring Pakistan a terrorist state. Swarup termed the same as a favorable development.

He said, “Surely it will be treated with the utmost seriousness – in US Congress.”

When asked if India will consider a similar move, Swarup said, “We don’t have a process to declare a state a sponsor of terrorism; we need to bring changes internally.”

Though India will expose Pakistan on every international platform, it will not hand over another dossier to Pakistan. “We don’t need a dossier, the whole world is aware of Pakistan’s role in promoting terror,” Swarup said.

“Yesterday (Wednesday) Pakistan’s high commissioner was summoned. At UNGA also, our first secretary fairly put India’s view by using right to reply. Now the responsibility is on Pakistan,” the MEA spokesperson said.

Though, Vikas Swarup stayed mum on Modi’s visit to SAARC summit in Islamabad. It is not clear whether Prime Minister Narendra Modi will go for the same or not following the Uri attacks.

The aggressive diplomatic assault on Pakistan comes in the aftermath of Uri terror attack.
