New Delhi: India has lashed out at Pakistan for raising the issue of Jammu and Kashmir in the United Nations Security Council (UNSC). India said the neighbouring country is a "living example" of how a country avoids its accountability on serious crimes like genocide and ethnic cleansing. India said it will continue to take concrete and decisive steps to respond to terrorist activities from across the border.
Dr Kajal Bhat, counsellor/legal advisor in India's Permanent Mission to the United Nations (UN), said in the Security Council on Thursday that she has to respond to some lies and malicious propaganda spread by a representative of Pakistan as she (Pakistan) is used to doing such an act. "Today, we are discussing how to empower accountability and justice for serious violations of international law. '
"Bangladesh came into existence 50 years ago because of Pakistan's shameful history of genocide in East Pakistan, which was never accepted, never apologised, nor any accountability was fixed. Bhat said that after pakistan's representative raised the issue of Jammu and Kashmir in the United Nations Security Council (UNSC), there was a fierce debate on "strengthening accountability and justice for serious violations of international law" under the chairmanship of the council's chief Albania.
