Pakistan raised the issue of Kashmir in the United Nations, India gave a befitting reply in the UNSC
Jaishankar said, 'We are clearly focused today on the urgency of reforming multilateralism. Naturally we will have our own particular views, but at least there is a growing consensus that this cannot be delayed further.
India gave a befitting reply to Pakistan for raising the issue of Kashmir in the United Nations Security Council. External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar said a country which hosted al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden and attacked its neighboring country's parliament has no right to preach at the United Nations.
External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar said the credibility of the United Nations depends on its effective response to the major challenges of our times, be it pandemics, climate change, conflict or terrorism. Chairing an open debate on 'International Peace and Security and a New Direction for Reformed Multilateralism' at the United Nations Security Council (UNSC), Jaishankar said, 'We are clearly focused today on the urgency of reforming multilateralism. Naturally we will have our own particular views, but at least there is a growing consensus that this cannot be delayed further.
He also said, 'The question of justifying what the world considers unacceptable should not arise. This certainly applies to state sponsorship of cross-border terrorism. Nor can hosting Osama bin Laden and attacking a neighboring country's parliament serve as credentials to preach before this Council' but Jaishankar gave this reaction.Significantly, on December 13, 2001, the terrorists of Lashkar-e-Taiba and Jaish-e-Mohammed attacked the Parliament. In this attack, five personnel of the Delhi Police, a woman personnel of the Central Reserve Police Force and two members of Parliament were martyred while fighting the terrorists. An employee and a cameraman were also killed in the attack.
