Pakistan should stop being terrorism’s pillar of support: India
Bern: Making a statement at the United Nations Human Rights Council’s (UNHRC’s) 33rd session in Geneva city of Switzerland, India on Monday said the council should take heed of Pakistan’s continued support to terror outfits and required steps in this regard.
“We strongly believe that ‘zero tolerance’ against terrorism is as much as a global responsibility as it is a commitment to citizens. Hence, it is our sincere request to UNHRC that the council should have a word with Pakistan regarding its continued and direct support to terrorism.
The country’s statement came a day after one of the deadliest terror attacks on the Indian Army headquarters in Jammu and Kashmir’s Uri sector which killed as many as 18 soldiers.
What else India stated:
- It is high time that UNHRC should pay heed to Pakistan’s moral as well as finacial support to terror outfits who intend to damage us (India).
- Pakistan is a major threat to its neigbouring states.
- We request the council to urge the country to put an end to cross-border infiltration.
