United Nations, Sept 23: Pakistan has said that India’s strategy of “offensive defence and double squeeze” — aspiring towards regional hegemony — would never succeed.
Responding yesterday to the comments made by Indian delegate Eenam Gambhir in which she had criticised Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi’s address to the United Nations General Assembly on Friday, the Pakistani delegate Tipu Usma said that PM Abbasi was only reflecting the “sentiments and aspirations of the oppressed and suffering people of Kashmir”, who had been living “under India’s brutal occupation” since decades.
PM Abbasi had urged the world body to fulfill its promises and grant the struggling people of Kashmir their due right to self-determination in his speech to the UN, a report in The Express Tribune today said.
Earlier, Eenam Gambhir had said that Pakistan regularly indulged in cross-border terrorism.
She also said that Kashmir was an integral part of India. UNI
