India Slams Pakistan at UN

India slammed Pakistan calling it a “cradle for global terrorism” and said that J&K is an integral part of India.

“J&K has been, is and will continue to be an integral part of India and Pakistan should cease to covet it. As far as the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) is concerned, it has no locus standi to comment on the internal affairs of India,” he added.
