Sushma Swaraj rips apart Pakistan at UNGA

India on Friday ripped into Pakistan, describing it as "terroristan" and a land of "pure terror" that hosts a flourishing industry to produce and export global terrorism.

External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj on Saturday blasted Pakistan for supporting and promoting terror-related activities from its soil. The bilateral trade between India and the UAE is worth $52.8 billion.

India, in its bid to isolate Pakistan internationally, told United Nations on Friday that the country has become a synonym of terrorism. In a series of tweets, Mr Modi said, "A strong message was given by Sushma Swaraj ji on the dangers of terrorism and why we have to unite and fight this menace..." Among other things, it is expected to include mention of the fight against terrorism, reform of the UN Security Council, climate change and an emerging India's role and responsibilities in the 21st century. "Demonetisation was a courageous decision to challenge one of the by-products of corruption, the "black money" that disappeared from circulation", Swaraj said.

Swaraj also raised the issue of H1-B visa, with Tillerson, which is most sought by Indian IT professionals.

"India will continue to work on this above and beyond the Paris Agreement".

Ms Swaraj, who delivered her speech, in Hindi, said that the Pakistani PM has to answer why the peace process between the two countries was stalled despite India's efforts and referred to her own visit to Islamabad in 2015 in this regard.

Swaraj also pointed out that the developed countries must listen more carefully than others because they have more capacities than others. "This was, understandably, not easy to complete in three years, but our banks, achieved this visionary goal set by our Prime Minister".

Among the Government's initiatives, Ms. Swaraj cited the Jan Dhan plan, by which some 300 million Indians - roughly equivalent to the population of the United States - who had never crossed the doors of a bank today have bank accounts.

The Union Minister also batted for "combined efforts for reforms in International Monetary Fund and of the UN Security Council". She takes the podium for the second consecutive year.

India has been calling for the reform of the Security Council for a long time.

In a meeting with Russian Foreign Minister Sergie Lavrov on the sidelines of the 72nd UNGA session in NY, the Pakistani foreign minister discussed mutual efforts for strengthening Pakistan-Russia relations and the prevailing global and regional security situation.
