Pakistani FM lashes back at India at UNGA

Just last week, Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan labeled India arrogant on Saturday for cancelling what would have been the countries’ first high-level talks in years. His foreign minister, Shah Mehmood Qureshi kept up the rhetoric at the UN, saying India’s cancellations have been based on “flimsy grounds,” he said. “They preferred politics over peace.” He also called out India for backing “terrorism.”

His strong words followed a similarly bruising address by India’s foreign minister at the Turtle Bay dais. Indian Foreign Minister, Sushma Swarag, accused Islamabad of “hypocrisy.”

Resumption of talks have been stalled for years over the issue of Kashmir, claimed by both countries and ruled in part by each of them. Pakistan and India have fought two of their three wars since independence from Britain in 1947 over the region.

The Indian government of Prime Minister Narendra Modi government has insisted that Pakistan act against Islamist militants Kashmir, saying Pakistan still aids the groups from the portion of Kashmir it rules.

Pakistan denies aiding any attacks there and says it is fighting militant groups for its own security.
