As it happened: Sushma attacks Pakistan in speech at UNGA
Foreign minister Sushma Swaraj was addressing the United Nations general assembly on Monday against the backdrop of tensions between India and Pakistan triggered by a terror attack on an Indian Army camp in Uri.
External affairs minister Sushma Swaraj attacked Pakistan on Monday, saying in her speech at the United Nations General Assembly that Jammu and Kashmir is an inalienable part of the country and nobody can snatch it away.
Swaraj, in a retort to Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif’s speech last week where he harped on Kashmir, said: “Kashmir is an integral part of India and it will remain an integral part of India. No one can take it away by force.”
Sharif had used his speech to call for a “serious and sustained dialogue” for the peaceful resolution of all outstanding disputes, especially Kashmir, and an independent inquiry and a UN fact-finding mission into “rights violations” in the strife-torn state.
Here are highlights of Swaraj’s speech:
