On Pakistan's claim of fighting terrorism, India asked the neighbouring country if it could deny the fact that was the host and patron of 132 of the UN-designated terrorists and 22 terrorist entities under the 1267 and the 1988 UN Security Council sanctions regime. "Neither has its belief in hypocrisy", Swaraj said.
She advised that the United Nations must try and emulate the format of a family the nations must work together and keep every country's goals in perspective for the welfare of the world.
Pakistan wants to hold talks with India for peace, says FM Qureshi.
The Minister said, New Delhi believes that talks are only rational means to resolve the most complex of disputes and talks with Pakistan have begun many times. Talks with Pakistan have begun many times. "They were stalled only because of Pakistan's own behaviour", she said. Qureshi warned India against testing patience of Pakistan. But soon after, Pakistan sponsored terrorists attacked our Air Force base in Pathankot on 2nd January (2016).
Pakistan, which was at the receiving end of a blunt attack by India at the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) for its "behaviour" towards terrorism, in its reply moved to target "Hindu extremist" Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) and the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP). We accepted the proposal. "Does this indicate a desire for dialogue?"
Referring to Qureshi's statement where he alleged India's involvement in the 2014 Peshawar school attack, the Indian diplomat said, "Among the most outrageous was the preposterous allegation relating to the horrific terror attack on a Peshawar school four years ago".

He said that the unresolved Kashmir dispute poses great threat to peace and stability in the region, adding that peace can never be established in South Asia unless the issue is resolved in accordance with the United Nations resolutions.
The foreign minister said that the Human Rights Watch's report on Occupied Kashmir had exposed India's face. "Till today, that draft remains a draft because we can not agree on a common language".
"Pakistan has been fighting terrorism for the past 17 years and we have sacrificed thousands of lives", he added. "Cruelty and barbarism are advertised as heroism". If we do not act now, we will have to deal with conflagration later.
The minister said that peace could not be brought to Afghanistan through war.
On climate change, Swaraj said underdeveloped and developing nations were "the worst victims" of the problem, adding, "they neither had the capacity nor the resources to meet this crisis". "Those, who have exploited nature for their immediate needs, can not abdicate their responsibilities", she added.
We need to change the institution's head and heart to make both compatible to contemporary reality.
"In illiberal India of today, there is no room for dissent", it said. "We hope India will do it as well", he added.
