Sushma Swaraj at UNGA LIVE: India to Address the United Nations General Assembly Today

Addressing the 73rd Session of the United Nations General Assembly in NY, he said that Pakistan will continue to support the comprehensive reforms in the Security Council and wants to see it more democratic and transparent. Most of the people in the audience which included a large number of people of Pakistani descent did not join his laughter.

"Will Pakistan deny that the UN-designated terrorist Hafiz Saeed enjoys a free run inside Pakistan and spews venom and sets up candidates for electoral offices", she said.

"For a new vision to materialise, Pakistan must demonstrate that it has moved beyond a narrative of deception, deceit and distortion", Ms. Gambhir said.

"In our case, terrorism is bred not in some faraway land, but across our border to the west", Swaraj said. "Our neighbour's "expertise" is not restricted to spawning grounds for terrorism; it is also an expert in trying to mask malevolence with verbal duplicity", she said.

The minister said that Pakistan wants to have friendly relations with the neighboring countries, adding that Pakistan wants to resolve all outstanding issues with India through dialogue but the Indian government has wasted an opportunity for the third time. New Delhi had agreed to hold the meeting in response to a letter from newly-elected Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan, who has written his Indian counterpart, Narendra Modi, stressing the need for positive change, a mutual desire for peace and a readiness to discuss terrorism. In UN we can not say this is me mine or I, it is us we or ours. "But within hours of our acceptance, news came that terrorists had killed one of our jawans".

Explaining how Islamabad betrayed even Washington, Swaraj said, "Osama Bin Laden, the architect and ideologue of 9/11, was given safe haven in Pakistan, a country that claimed to be America's friend and ally". "I wish, I wish we could have smiled at each other", he said.

Trump thanks Kim for steps taken to denuclearise N Korea
His tax reform is possibly the most historic action Trump has guided, which has helped many small businesses (and big businesses). The president was highlighting United States gains under his watch as he opened his address to the UN General Assembly .

The entire South Asian Association for Regional Cooperation (SAARC) had become dysfunctional due to the attitude of India, Qureshi lamented, adding that New Delhi promoted state-sponsored terrorism in the occupied Kashmir in front of the worldwide community. "Pakistan glorifies killers, while refusing to see the blood of innocents".

He further added, "Pakistan knows how to tackle India should it make a mistake". India's Parliament had expressed solidarity while paying respect to the memory of those killed.

Pakistan and India have fought two of their three wars since independence in 1947 over Kashmir, divided between the two countries but sought by each in its entirety.

The minister said that peace could not be restored in South Asia if the Kashmir dispute remains unresolved.

"For over 70 years it has remained on the agenda of the UN Security Council and a blot on the conscience of humanity", he said. Referring to the report of the Human Rights High Commissioner, Foreign Minister Qureshi expressed grave concern at the plight and suffering of Kashmiris at the hands of government forces. It is now one of the smallest, with about 120 troops as of last month.
