‘J&K will remain an integral part of India, it’s time Pakistan reconciles to this’
UNITED NATION, Sep 08 : India has told Pakistan that Jammu and Kashmir will remain its integral part and criticised Islamabad for using terrorism as “tool of state policy” to covet the Indian territory.
Senior Indian diplomat Srinivas Prasad said it was “well known” that Islamabad provides safe havens to terrorists.
In a reply to Pakistan’s Permanent Representative Maleeha Lodhi who raised the Kashmir issue during a debate on Thursday, Prasad said Islamabad has used “terrorism as a tool of state policy” and was using the UN platform to “covet Indian territory”.
“It reiterates the principle of the need for promotion of peace through non-violence, a principle Gandhiji so eloquently expressed in his life message,” Prasad said.
