India calls Pakistan ‘prime sponsor of terrorism’, asks it to vacate Kashmir: Indian media spews venom after Nawaz’s UN General Assembly address
NEW DELHI/NEW YORK: Indian media has started spewing venom after Prime Minister (PM) Nawaz Sharif raised Kashmir issue in his address to the 70th General Assembly session of the United Nations (UN) in New York.
Indian media has reported that Nawaz lied to the world and distorted the reality of the matter. The media outlets also criticised that PM’s entire speech revolved around Kashmir dispute. However, former Indian ambassador said that such a speech by Pakistani PM has been delivered for the first time in history and India must respond to it.
Indian Foreign Ministry spokesman Vikas Swarup in a series of tweets called Pakistan ”prime sponsor of terrorism,” and asked Islamabad to vacate the part of Kashmir it has occupied, virtually laying down a new paradigm for any resolution of the issue.
”Pakistan is not primary victim of terrorism but of its own policies. It is in fact the prime sponsor of terrorism. Pakistan’s instability arises from its breeding of terrorists. Blaming neighbors is not a solution,” Vikas Swarup said in tweets on Wednesday.
“To de-militarize Kashmir is not the answer, to de-terrorize Pakistan is,” Swarup blasted.
Permanent Mission of India to the UN exercised its right to reply and stated that Pakistan has portrayed a false picture of the reality in the region. The statement issued by the Ministry of External Affairs of India stated that India has a reservation over China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) only because it uses Indian territory “occupied” by Pakistan for years.
