"In our case, terrorism is bred not in some faraway land, but across our border to the west", Swaraj said.

"India violates the ceasefire on the line of control to divert the world's attention from human rights violations in occupied Kashmir", Qureshi said.

External Affairs Minister said, India had proposed a draft document on CCIT at the United Nations in 1996 but till today, that draft has remained a draft, because so far a common language has not been agreed upon.

"What America perhaps could not comprehend was that Osama would get sanctuary in a country that claimed to be America's friend and ally: Pakistan", she said, adding, "Pakistan's commitment to terrorism as an instrument of official policy has not abated one bit".


Swaraj slammed Pakistan for offering "spawning grounds for terrorism".

Referencing the 26/11 Mumbai terror attack, she said "Hafiz Saeed is still roaming freely" and accused Pakistan of calling terrorists "freedom fighters". This is a complete lie.

Sushma Swaraj said it was "heartening" that the world was no longer ready to believe Pakistan.

The minister informed the worldwide community that Prime Minister Imran Khan-led government of Pakistan has planned to plant as many as 10 billion trees in the country. "The new Foreign Minister of Pakistan chose to term the gruesome killing of our security personnel by Pakistani sponsored terrorists as "flimsy" grounds".

"Before preaching to the world, championing of human rights should begin at home", Gambhir said. The photographs turned out to be from another country. Addressing the 73rd United Nations General Assembly debate, the foreign minister said despite India extending the olive branch for talks many times, it had to be stopped only because of the behavior of the neighbouring country. "Each government has tried the peace option", Swaraj said, recalling that Prime Minister Narendra Modi had invited all South Asian heads of state and government for his inauguration in May 2014, including then Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif.

She asked if Pakistan can deny the fact that it is the "host and patron" of 132 of the UN-designated terrorists and 22 terrorist entities listed under the UN Security Council Sanctions regimes.
