New Delhi: The diplomatic battle between India and Pakistan following the Uri terrorist attack has shifted to New York. After Pakistani Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif raised the Kashmir issue and went to the extent of calling Burhan Wani as a youth Kashmiri leader, India diplomatically attacked Pakistan with its full might.
Pakistan seemed to have lost the diplomatic battle even before it launched the offensive as Russia and France condemned terrorist attack and called Pakistan to reign in terrorists.
Indian diplomats seem to have badly beaten Pakistan in its effort to raise the ongoing protests in Kashmir Valley. The Uri attack that saw the death of 18 Indian soldiers had already taken the air off Pakistani onslaught.
In the meantime External Affairs Ministry spokesperson Vikas Swarup told reporters here that India was “sensitizing the world” about how Pakistan was sponsoring terrorism. “Our actions speak for themselves and you can see our actions are already delivering results,” Swarup said, a day after Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif aggressively raised the Kashmir issue in his speech at the UN General Assembly in New York. The spokesperson said most countries have condemned the Sunday terror attack at Uri near the Line of Control (LoC) – the de facto border between India and Pakistan in Jammu and Kashmir.
While detailing it further, the top Indian diplomat said “No one and I mean no other country at the UN has spoken on the subject Nawaz Sharif devoted 80 per cent of his time to” India has said the militants who attacked the military base had come from Pakistan and belonged to Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM), headed by Masood Azhar – the known militant commander released in exchange for an Indian Airlines flight hijacked to Afghanistan in December 1999. Asked if India was preparing any fresh dossier on Pakistan’s involvement in terrorist activities, Swarup said: “We don’t need a dossier, the whole world is aware of Pakistan’s role in promoting terror.”
