India's Ambassador to the United Nations, Syed Akbaruddin, posted the statement in a tweet, along with a video clip of Ms Gambhir speaking at the UN. Swaraj is also expected to reiterate India's long-pending demand of a permanent seat in the UN Security Council (UNSC).

Calling it a "preposterous allegation", India reminded the new Pakistan government of Imran Khan that there was an outpouring of sorrow and pain in India following the massacre of children in 2014.

India on September 29 expressed deep sympathies to the people and government of Indonesia, and assured all help to the southeast Asian nation where a tsunami triggered by a strong quake has killed almost 400 people.

Mrs Swaraj said, in India's case, terrorism is bred not in some faraway land, but across the border.

New Delhi accused Islamabad of attempting to "look away from the monster of terror that Pakistan has created to destabilise its neighbours". Paradoxically, India remains top exporter the cow meat.

"Pakistan continues to face terrorism financed and orchestrated by India".

During her speech, Shushma stressed upon collective efforts by the United Nations members countries to tackle the issues like climate change and terrorism which she termed as the biggest challenges of the 21st century.

Exercising right to reply, Pakistan diplomat at the United Nations said that in India claims of religious superiority are perpetrated through straight patronage all across the country and claimed that "the bleeding ground of terrorism in our region are the RSS centres of fascism". "Before preaching to the world, championing of human rights should begin at home", Gambhir added.

"The new Foreign Minister of Pakistan chose to term the gruesome killing of our security personnel by Pakistani sponsored terrorists as "flimsy" grounds. Each successive government in India tried to solve differences with talks but it has always come to a naught because of Pakistan's actions".

Even now, after the new government came to power, Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan wrote to Prime Minister Narendra Modi suggesting a meeting between Foreign Ministers in NY which was accepted by India. "India believes talks and terror can't go together".

"To conclude, what we have heard are fake allegations and fake facts, which can only make for a fake vision".

# Sushma Swaraj at UNGA: The biggest challenge of our era comes from the existential threats of climate change and terrorism. What America perhaps could not comprehend was that Osama would get sanctuary in a country that claimed to be America's friend and ally: "Pakistan", she said.

Swaraj said, "On the one hand, we want to fight terrorism; on the other, we can not define it".

The External Affairs Minister said, while the mastermind of 9/11 Osama Bin Laden was found and brought to justice in Pakistan, the mastermind of 26/11 Mumbai terror attacks Hafiz Saeed is at large in Pakistan and is eulogised and is being allowed to contest elections and is allowed to threaten India openly.
