Amid the tension with Pakistan, India on Monday called for the adoption of Comprehensive Convention on International Terrorism to develop norms to prosecute and extradite terrorists.
“Countries that nurture, paddle and export terror should have no place in the comity of nations,” External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj said to the UN General Assembly.
The foreign minister gave a stinging response to Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif’s UN General Assembly speech, alleging human rights violation and calling Hizbul Mujhahideen commander Burhan Wani as youth leader.
"Jinke apne ghar shishe ke ho, unhe dusro par patthar nahi fekne chahiye," (People who live in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones at others), she said.
Reiterating India’s firm stand on Kashmir, Sushma said that Kashmir will always be with India.
“Kashmir an inalienable part of India, nobody can wrest it away," the minister said.
In a direct attack on Pakistan, Sushma then raised the issue of Balochistan.
"The brutality against the Baloch people represents the worst form of state oppression," she said.
