NEW YORK: Pakistan on Saturday submitted its right to reply in the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) in response to Indian remarks on Prime Minister Imran Khan’s speech.
“Rarely has the General Assembly witnessed such misuse, rather abuse, of an opportunity to reflect. Words matter in diplomacy. Invocation of phrases such as ‘pogrom’, ‘bloodbath’, ‘racial superiority’, ‘pick up the gun’ and ‘fight to the end’ reflect a medieval mindset and not a 21st-century vision,” said First Secretary of the Indian External Affairs Ministry Vidisha Maitra while exercising her right to reply.
In response, Zulqarnain Chheena, a diplomat of the Pakistani mission, while exercising his right to reply said PM Khan had exposed the real cruel face of Indian state terrorism before the world community.
Chheena said that the Indian government was carrying forward the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) agenda, adding, “The killers of Mahatma Gandhi are now ruining the secular face of India in occupied Kashmir.”
India is committing state terrorism in occupied Jammu and Kashmir for the last thirty years, he said.
Premier Imran in his speech to UNGA, highlighted Indian atrocities in occupied Kashmir and on minorities inside India, he added.
