New Delhi: Condemning the Uri attacks, Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) spokesperson, Vikas Swarup, said, “You would have seen the very strong condemnation of Uri Attack by most countries including UK, France, Saudi Arabia and many others.” Vikas Swarup was addressing media in the National capital on Thursday.
Hitting out directly at Pakistan’s PM, Nawaz Sharif, MEA said, “As far as the so-called dossier Nawaz Sharif spoke of in his speech, we find no mention of it in UN Secretary General’s statement. No one and, I mean, no other country at UN has spoken on the subject that Mr. Nawaz Sharif devoted 80% of his time to”, the MEA spokesperson Vikas Swarup stated at the press conference.
Also commenting on the bill by the US Congress to designate Pakistan as a terrorist state, the MEA spokesperson said that it will be dealt with utmost seriousness.
When asked about PM Modi’s visit to Islamabad for the SAARC summit, the MEA spokesperson-turned diplomat said, “Every question doesn’t have a yes or no answer”.
In the press conference, MEA spokesperson further addressed the Indus Waters Treaty issue and said, “For any such treaty to work, it’s important that there must be mutual trust and cooperation; it can’t be a one-sided affair”.
The press conference by MEA was in reaction to Pakistan PM Nawaz Sharif’s address at the 71st UN General Assembly (UNGA) in New York which he delivered on Wednesday. He had accused India of human rights violations in PoK.
