“Recently we have caught two Pakistani terrorists alive”, she said.
Sharif: Palestinians and Kashmiris (are) oppressed by foreign occupation.
Sartaj Aziz said Pakistan has suffered the most in the fight against terrorism, and our sacrifices for the sake of global peace have also been acknowledged by the entire world.
“Pakistan is not primary victim of terrorism but of its own policies”.
She gave the statement on behalf of her prime minister, Narendra Modi, who didn’t turn up on the occasion. “Blaming neighbours is not a solution”, he said.
India, whose foreign minister is due to address the General Assembly on Thursday, quickly issued a rebuttal, accusing Pakistan of depicting itself as a victim.
New Delhi considers Kashmir an integral part of India and any such move an interference in internal affairs and counterproductive to a dialogue. External affairs ministry spokesman Vikas Swarup tweeted: “To de-militarise Kashmir is not the answer, to deterrorise Pakistan is”.
Abhishek Singh: Regrettable that Pakistan is once again choosing to misuse the United Nations general assembly session to distort reality and portray a false picture of the challenges in our region.
“We agree that terrorism has underlying causes – in this case, poverty of wisdom and ignorance of consequences” he said.
Reiterating Pakistan’s commitment to eliminate terrorism completely, General Sharif said that the success of the Zarb-i-Azb military operation against Taliban militants has made important impact on the security situation in Pakistan.
“Yesterday, the prime minister of Pakistan proposed what he termed a four-point new peace initiative”.

Steps need to be taken to demilitarize Kashmir.
Ahmad also alleged that India has “failed to bring to justice the perpetrators of terrorism against innocent civilians in the 2007 Samjhauta Express bombings”, and spoke of “massacre of Muslims in Gujarat”. She also said recent cross-border attacks were meant to destabilize India.
