India Seeks Probe Into Nuclear Proliferation Links Between Pak N Korea

In addition to the reform of the United Nations, in particular that of the Security Council, Akbaruddin said that issues of climate change, terrorism, people-centric migration and peacekeeping are other key focus areas for India this year. All this is to say that if Japan has its economic and commercial interests in India, it has similar interests in Pakistan as well.

The external affairs minister had earlier also condemned terrorism in all its forms and manifestations while addressing a meeting of foreign ministers of member nations on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly.

India asked Pakistan on Saturday to consider why after gaining Independence together 70 years ago, India was an IT power and produces engineers and doctors while Pakistan churns out jihadis who are a threat to the world. We have marched ahead, consistently, without pause, in Education, Health and across the range of human welfare.

At the BRICS ministerial meeting, Swaraj launched a veiled attack on Pakistan, stating that militants were continuing to find shelter in countries that are using terrorism as an "instrument of state policy". "Those listening had only one observation: 'Look who's talking!'" We all in bilateral and multilateral discussions condemn this evil, and piously resolve to fight it in all our declaratory statements.

Swaraj also called for an global definition of terrorism from the United Nations within this year."If we cannot agree to define our enemy, how can we fight together?" she said.

The Minister said, several initiatives that Prime Minister Narendra Modi had announced for the region have already been implemented. "Prime minister Abbasi has recalled old resolutions that have been long overtaken by events", she said. "We focused our efforts on development while Pakistan nurtured terrorism.We developed IITs and IIMs while they created jihadis and terrorists", she said. What have you (Pakistan) produced?

"Pakistan's Prime Minister spoke of a "Comprehensive Dialogue" between our two countries. And he must answer why that proposal withered, because Pakistan is responsible for the aborting that peace process", she asserted. "The fact is that when we are required to fight and destroy this enemy, the self-interest of some leads them towards duplicity", she said.
