UNITED NATIONS: Calling out Pakistan’s “lie” that India is sabotaging the dialogue process, External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj on Saturday asked world leaders how can talks can be pursued in the midst of “terrorist bloodshed” with a nation that “glorifies killers.”
In a hard-hitting retort to Pakistan, Swaraj said India has made many efforts to have talks with Islamabad and the only reason they have stopped is because of Pakistan’s behaviour.
“We are accused of sabotaging the process of talks. This is a complete lie. We believe that talks are the only rational means to resolve the most complex of disputes. Talks with Pakistan have begun many times. If they stopped, it was only because of Pakistan’s behaviour,” she said in her address to the General Debate of the 73rd session of the UN General Assembly here. (AGENCIES)
