Sell-by date of Pakistan’s anachronistic approach over: India
The “sell-by date” of Pakistan’s “anachronistic approach” is long over and the country should “abandon” its “futile quest” for, India has said in a strong rebuttal to Islamabad’s allegations that New Delhi is escalating the current situation.
India’s Permanent Representative to the UN Ambassador Syed Akbaruddin strongly rejected remarks by Pakistan’s envoy Maleeha Lodhi, who said during a General Assembly debate on ‘Report of the Secretary General on the Work of the Organisation’ that India has created conditions that pose a threat to peace and security in the region by its recent “declarations and actions.”
Akbaruddin responded sharply by saying that Pakistan’s claims in the UN are finding no resonance and it should abandon its quest for Kashmir, which is an integral part of India.
“Our response to Pakistan is consistent. Abandon your futile quest. The state of Jammu and Kashmir is an integral part of India and will remain so,” Akbaruddin said asserting that no amount of “misuse” of international platforms by Pakistan will change that reality.
“The sell-by date of Pakistan’s anachronistic approach is long over,” he said on Wednesday.
Akbaruddin said claims by Pakistan, a global epicenter of terrorism, on Kashmir find no resonance amongst the international community, with Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif raising the Kashmir issue in his General Assembly address also finding no support.
