India slams Pak PM’s peace remark

The government on Saturday slammed Pakistan Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif for his anti-India tirade at the 77th session of the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) a day earlier.

The first secretary of the Indian Mission to the United Nations, Mijito Vinito, termed Shehbaz Sharif’s claims over the Kashmir issue false and accused Islamabad of indulging in “cross-border terrorism”.

“It is regrettable that the Prime Minister of Pakistan has chosen the platform of this assembly to make false accusations against India. He has done so to obfuscate misdeeds in his own country and to justify actions against India,”  Vinito said.

In an apparent reference to terrorist Dawood Ibrahim, he said the country that claims to seek peace with its neighbours, would never shelter conspirators of 1993 Mumbai bomb blasts.
