Swaraj expected to give befitting reply to ‘terrorist state’ Pakistan at UN
As India blamed Pakistan for the recent terror attacks, External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj is expected to lead India’s attack on Pakistan and seek global support to dub it a “terror state” in her address at the UN General Assembly which is scheduled late on Monday.
Earlier, Prime Minister Narendra Modi, reacting to the recent Uri attack that killed 18 Indian soldiers, in his first public speech post the attack, openly warned Pakistan of isolating it internationally.
Taking a cue from the PM, Sushma Swaraj is likely to take a tough stance, and is likely to be blunt, vis-a-vis the western neighbour, reported IANS.
“Leading India’s delegation to the 71st UNGA. EAM @SushmaSwaraj arrives in New York,” External Affairs Ministry spokesperson Vikas Swarup tweeted.
Sushma Swaraj is also expected to raised the Kashmir issue, which India alleged that the protest is being fuel by Pakistan.
Modi on Saturday said India would totally isolate Pakistan in the international arena for “exporting terror”
Earlier this week, while responding to Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif’s tirade against India under right to reply, the Indian diplomatic mission at the UN was also point-blank and did not hesitate to call the neighbouring country “Ivy League of terror”.
Sushma Swaraj’s tone during her address to the UNGA on Monday is also likely to be equally tough and blunt. India’s much-awaited address at the United Nations General Assembly is scheduled later on Monday with Sushma Swaraj expected to focus on the recent terror attack at Uri in Kashmir, up the ante against Pakistan and seek global support to dub it a “terror state”.
“Rulers of Pakistan, listen. The sacrifices of our 18 soldiers won’t go in vain. India has been successful in isolating you. We will force you to be left alone in the world. That day is not far when people of Pakistan will take to streets to fight against the rulers and fight terrorism,” Modi had said.
Swaraj is also expected to give a befitting reply to an earlier address at the UNGA by Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif.
