United Nations, Sep 26:

India on Monday told the UN that its offer of unconditional friendship to Pakistan was met with a series of betrayals in the form of cross-border terror attacks.


External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj, speaking in Hindi at the United Nations General Assembly, said Prime Minister Narendra Modi had extended the hand of friendship to Pakistan by inviting his counterpart Nawaz Sharif to his swearing-in ceremony in May 2014, and also visiting Lahore last December in a goodwill gesture.

“But what did we get in return? Pathankot, Uri, Bahadur Ali,” she said, referring to the January 2 terror attack on an air force base in Pathankot that left seven soldiers dead, and the Uri attack of September 18 in which 18 soldiers died, and the capture of Pakistani terrorist Bahadur Ali. (IANS)
