In a strong response to Pakistan, India has said in the UN General Assembly that a country that claims to seek peace would never sponsor terror, nor shelter terrorists.

India exercised the right of reply in the UN General Assembly on Friday to respond to Pakistan Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif, who had raked up the issue of Jammu and Kashmir during his address to the General Debate earlier in the day.

“It is regrettable that the prime minister of Pakistan has chosen the platform of this august assembly to make false accusations against India,” First Secretary in the Permanent Mission of India to the UN, Mijito Vinito. “He has done so to obfuscate misdeeds in his own country and to justify actions against India that the world considers unacceptable.

“A polity that claims it seeks peace with its neighbours would never sponsor cross-border terrorism, nor would it shelter planners of the horrific Mumbai terrorist attack, disclosing their existence only under pressure from the international community,” he responded.
