New Delhi: External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj arrived at the United Nations in New York on Monday. While addressing the 71st session of the UN General Assembly, she said, “India has never set any condition for dialogues but has only tried to strengthen ties, “but in return has got Pathankot, Uri, Bahadur Ali”.
Sushma Swaraj gave a befitting response to Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif on Kashmir issue. In a veiled attack on Pakistan, she said, “We all have to come together to fight the scourge of terrorism, if some country is not willing then it must be isolated”.
Referring to the recent attack on Uri army base, Swaraj said Kashmir is an integral part of India and Pakistan must stop dreaming about it.
