Addressing the 71st UN General Assembly (UNGA) session, External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj on Monday gave a befitting reply to Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif’s rant on Kashmir, earlier at the UN. Taking a jibe at Pakistan, Swaraj said those accusing others of rights violations must introspect as it censured Pakistan for the first time at the UNGA for perpetrating the “worst form of state oppression” in Balochistan.

“In our midst, there are nations that still speak the language of terrorism, that nurture it, peddle it, and export it. To shelter terrorists has become their calling card. We must identify these nations and hold them to account,” Swaraj
asserted in her nearly 20-minute speech.
