Prime News, International (Washington), Sept 25:- India slammed Imran Khan in its Right of Reply in response to Pakistan Prime Prime Minister’s references to Kashmir in his United Nations General Assembly virtual speech and stated that Islamabad has an established history of actively supporting terrorists. Sneha Dubey First Secretary at UNGA said, “Regrettably, this is not the first time the leader of Pakistan has misused platforms provided by the UN to propagate false and malicious propaganda against my country, and seeking in vain to divert the world’s attention from the sad state of his country where terrorists enjoy free pass while the lives of ordinary people, especially those belonging to the minority communities, are turned upside down.”
“Member States are aware that Pakistan has an established history and policy of harbouring, aiding and actively supporting terrorists. This is a country that has been globally recognized as one openly supporting, training, financing and arming terrorists as a matter of State policy. It holds the ignoble record of hosting the largest number of terrorists proscribed by the UN Security Council,” added Dubey.
She slammed Pakistan for bringing up the internal matter of India.
“We exercise our Right of Reply to one more attempt by the leader of Pakistan to tarnish the image of this august forum by bringing in matters internal to my country, and going so far as to spew falsehoods on the world stage,” she said.
Khan had addressed the United Nations General Assembly virtually today where he raked up the Kashmir issue during his address.
Asserting that Pakistan desires peace with India, Khan, however, said sustainable peace in South Asia is contingent upon the resolution of the Jammu and Kashmir dispute.
“The onus remains on India to create a conducive environment for meaningful and result-oriented engagement with Pakistan,” Khan’s statement read. (MR, Inputs: Agencies).
