Modi violating United Nations norms on non-interference: Pak diplomat

The Indian foreign minister responded to Sharif in her address, rejecting the accusation that her government was imposing preconditions and arguing that it had taken unprecedented steps to improve relations.

She told the world body that India had offered an unconditional hand of friendship to Pakistan but got cross-border terror attacks in return.

The envoy termed the deaths in the Kashmir Valley as "worst form of state terrorism, a war crime, that India has continued to Jammu and Kashmir for the past many decades". "Those who finance it and bankroll its activities across the world must be isolated", she said while referring to how Afghanistan too had given a similar call at UNGA.

Kosovo's foreign minister says that other nations have exported violent extremism to his country, which has seen a greater percentage of its citizens fight for the Islamic State group than any nation in Europe.

She also made a strong pitch for isolating such nations who speak the language of terrorism and for whom sheltering terrorists has become "their calling card". Last month U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry urged Pakistan to join other nations in fighting terrorism.

The statement from the Chinese Foreign Ministry came after Punjab (Pakistan) Chief Minister's Office stated that China sides Pakistan on the Kashmir issue.

The Bharatiya Janata Party strongly condemns the terrorist attack on the Indian Army camp at Uri in J&K. Kashmir is an internationally recognised dispute.

"I am not aware of the situation you mentioned", MFA spokesperson Geng Shuang said at the regular press briefing on Monday. Drawing the attention towards the horrendous human rights violations being committed by Indian security forces, the President called upon the global community, especially the United States, to help bring an immediate end to the reign of terror unleashed on innocent freedom loving Kashmiris.

External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj said the arrest of Pakistani Bahadur Ali was "living proof of Pakistan's complicity in crossborder terror".

To put it in context, during his address at the UNGA, Pakistan's Prime Minister had said terrorism is a violation of human rights and the country itself is a victim of terrorism. "We hope the relevant parties will peacefully and properly resolve the issue through dialogue and consultation", he said. "Pakistan has already declared war against India. We are seeing a ray because usually when such statements are raised it only remains as statement but in this case there is continuity", he added.

They are in the interest of both India and Pakistan and the people of our two countries. "Pakistan is facing this condition today because it always protected terrorism instead of taking eradication it".
