India calls Pakistan ‘Terroristan’ in UN speech row 

In his speech [Pakistan’s] PM Shahid Khaqan Abbasi accused India of “war crimes” in the disputed Kashmir region and of “exporting terror” to Pakistan.

…In his speech Mr Abbasi addressed the issue of the Afghan war, saying Pakistan refused to be a “scapegoat” for the conflict. The US accuses the Pakistani intelligence services of ties to militants who operate in Afghanistan, allegations Pakistan rejects.

On Kashmir, the Pakistani leader accused India of employing “massive and indiscriminate force” against civilians protesting against Delhi’s rule.

“Shotgun pellets have blinded and maimed thousands of Kashmiris, including children. These and other brutalities clearly constitute war crimes and violate the Geneva conventions,” he said.

He also asked the UN to appoint a special envoy to oversee the region.

Exercising the right of reply, Eenam Gambhir, India’s first secretary to the UN, said it was “extraordinary that the state which protected Osama Bin Laden and sheltered Mullah Omar should have the gumption to play the victim”.

“Pakistan is now Terroristan with a flourishing industry producing and exporting global terrorism,” the envoy said.
