“Pakistan has suffered the most in the fight against terrorism, and our sacrifices for the sake of global peace have also been acknowledged by the entire world,” the premier’s adviser said, according to Radio Pakistan.
Confirming that Pakistan has handed over dossiers containing evidence of Indian involvement in terrorism and fomenting instability in the country to UN chief Ban Ki-moon, Aziz said, “Ambassador Maleeha Lodhi has handed over the dossier containing proofs of Indian involvement especially in Fata, Balochistan and Karachi to the UN secretary general.”
Further, the premier’s top aide said Pakistan has also apprised foreign ministers of 15 countries of Indian aggression on the Line of Control and Working Boundary. “Pakistan has always desired to resolve all disputes with India through peace talks, while India is stressing only on terrorism.”

Referring to the Indian occupation of Kashmir, the adviser on foreign affairs said certain elements are trying to use global war on terror as a pretext to crush oppressed people’s struggle for self-determination. “India’s attempts to deny its illegal occupation of Jammu and Kashmir are a travesty of history.”
Meanwhile, exercising the right of reply during the General Debate of the 70th session of UNGA in New York, Counsellor Permanent Mission of Pakistan to the UN Bilal Ahmad pointed out that over seven hundred thousand Indian troops are deployed in Indian-occupied Kashmir.
“Only the occupier would oppose the implementation of UN Security Council Resolutions that promised self-determination to the people of the disputed state of Jammu and Kashmir,” Ahmad said.

Highlighting Indian terrorism in the occupied territory, the counsellor said if India had respect for international law and moral courage, it would end its reign of terror, withdraw its troops and let the Kashmiris freely decide their future in the UN mandated plebiscite.
Earlier today, Pakistan handed over dossiers containing evidence of Indian involvement in terrorism and fomenting instability in the country to UN chief Ban Ki-moon.
Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif announced his proposal at the annual United Nations General Assembly on Wednesday, saying the two nuclear-armed countries should formalise a ceasefire in Kashmir and take steps to demilitarise the divided region.

India issued a swift rebuttal, accusing Pakistan of claiming to be the primary victim of terrorism while “in truth, it is actually a victim of its own policy of breeding and sponsoring terrorists.”
On Thursday, Indian Foreign Minister Sushma Swaraj told the General Assembly that India remained open to dialogue, “but talks and terror cannot go together.”
“We don’t need four points, we need just one: Give up terrorism and let us sit down and talk,” she said.
