A day after India slammed Pakistan, External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj addresses 72nd United Nations General Assembly session.
During her address, Swaraj is expected to deliver a stinging response to Pakistan Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi speech in which he accused India of “war crimes” in Kashmir.
EAM shall also raise the issues like global fight against terrorism, climate change and the reforms of United Nation’s Security Council.
India, in its bid to isolate Pakistan internationally, told UN on Friday that the country has become a synonym of terrorism.
