FM Qureshi to reach Washington today for bilateral talks

The United Nations General Assembly

Gambhir also slammed Qureshi for his comment where he said that New Delhi cancelled the meeting of the foreign ministers of India and Pakistan on "flimsy ground". "The [Narendra] Modi government wasted an opportunity for a dialogue for the third time due to their negative attitude", he underlined.

"We are accused of sabotaging the process of talks", she said.

Pakistan, which was at the receiving end of a blunt attack by India at the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) for its "behaviour" towards terrorism, in its reply moved to target "Hindu extremist" Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) and the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP).

Pakistan's duplicity is a key obstacle in the global fight against terrorism and India is an immediate and continuing target of terrorism originating from there, External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj told the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) on Saturday.

"He (Qureshi) stressed on peaceful resolution of the (Kashmir) dispute, reflecting the wishes of the people of Jammu and Kashmir, in accordance with the UN Security Council resolutions is important". "Pakistan faces Indian-orchestrated terrorism such as the Peshawar attack, Mastung attack and countless others and the capturing of Indian Naval officer Kulbhushan Jadhev provided evidence of Indian-executed terrorism in Pakistan", he said.

She claimed that India, hours after agreeing to a meeting between Pakistani and Indian foreign ministers in NY on a proposal of Prime Minister Imran Khan, had cancelled the event because "news came that terrorists had killed three of our jawans". It has validated Pakistan's view.

Despite the call for talks, the foreign minister firmly warned India that violations of the ceasefire line in Kashmir "will evoke a strong and matching response". "We call for the implementation on its recommendations", he said.




She said, at the heart of Prime Minister Modi's transformative vision is an idea that the uplift of any nation is best achieved through the all-round empowerment of women. It is unfortunate that terrorism is reaching India from our neighbour. We will welcome a commission on occupied Kashmir.

External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj said today that the biggest challenges the world faces now are climate change and terrorism.

"One country has kept the entire South Asian region".

Speaking in Urdu, FM Qureshi presented Pakistan's viewpoint on issues ranging from terrorism, relations with India especially in the context of continuing rights violations in India-held Kashmir, war in Afghanistan, Palestine crisis, climate change, etc.

"Let me recollect for the new government of Pakistan the outpouring of sorrow and pain in India that followed the massacre of innocent children in 2014", Gambhir said.

India also ripped through efforts of the "New Pakistan" to champion human rights.

Moreover, FM Qureshi said that he will be meeting US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on October 2 to discuss bilateral matters.
