New Delhi: India today hit back at Pakistan, for “glorification” of Hizbul commander Burhan Wani at the UN General Assembly, which showed Islamabad’s “attachment to terrorism”.

India’s Ministry of External Affairs spokesperson Vikas Swarup tweeted India’s reaction, after Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif raked up the Kashmir issue in a major way in his UNGA address, and called for an international probe into alleged rights violations in the Kashmir Valley and a plebiscite.

Swarup posted, “PM Sharif at #UNGA says India poses unacceptable conditions to dialogue. India’s only condition is an end to terrorism. This not acceptable?”.

Sharif in his speech said that Pakistan is ready to “walk the extra mile” for dialogue with India, but New Delhi imposes unacceptable pre-conditions for talks.

“Pak PM Sharif at #UNGA in complete denial of Uri terror attack. 19 infiltration attempts stopped at LoC this year. Indigenous??!!,” Swarup tweeted.

His reference was to Sunday’s terror attack at an army base camp in Uri, Jammu and Kashmir, in which 18 Indian soldiers were killed and four attackers gunned down. India has blamed the attack on Pakistan-based Jaish-e-Mohammed militants.
